Best Zucchini Meatballs

This recipes was posted on Facebook by Kim DeMaria

From the share:
3 medium zucchini

From your garden:
1/4 c. thinly sliced basil
From your kitchen:
Kosher salt, to taste
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Egg, lightly beaten
1 c. panko breadcrumbs
1/2 c. freshly grated Parmesan, divided
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 (24) oz. jar marinara sauce

Grate the zucchini on a medium grater. Line a medium bowl with a kitchen towel. Add the grated zucchini. Season with salt to taste and toss with your hands. Pull up the sides of the towel and squeeze the zucchini until most of the excess moisture is removed.

Transfer the dried zucchini to a clean bowl. Add the garlic, basil, egg, panko bread crumbs, and 1/4 cup Parmesan. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Form the zucchini mixture into small balls. You should end up with about a dozen.

Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the meatballs and fry on all sides until golden brown, about 8-10 minutes. Drain the meatballs on a plate lined with paper towels. Wipe the skillet clean, and pour in marinara sauce. Turn the heat to medium and add the zucchini meatballs back to pan. Let simmer in sauce for about 3-5 more minutes, or until the sauce is warmed through. Serve with more grated Parmesan.
