Zoodles with Red Bell Peppers and Leeks

*All of our recipes are Whole30 compliant but as always, we encourage you to read the ingredients to familiarize yourself with the foods you should be consuming

As requested, here is our Zoodle recipe to pair with your Model Meals Asian Beef and Pork Meatballs recipe we provided a few days ago. Veggie noodles are so versatile and we love this light dish paired with meatballs or a meat sauce or just on their own!

2 tbsp ghee

INSTRUCTIONS:

Make sure to use a bigger sauté pan than you would assume you needed as zoodles spread and take a larger surface to cook properly. Melt ghee on medium heat in pan. Add shallots, garlic, and leeks. Sauté for two minutes until leeks start to turn translucent. Add red bell peppers. Sauté for approx 2 mins.  Add the spiralized zucchini. Stir to coat with sauce mixture. Toss noodles every minute or so for desired crispness. For Al Dente (MM Tip: Al Dente- adjective & adverb: cooked so as to be still firm when bitten.) approx 5 mins cooking time. At the very end season to taste with salt, pepper, and chili flakes.
