Swedish Meatballs with Zucchini Tagliatelle & Tomatoes


Meat balls, made in from scratch, with some love and organic meat, that’s hard to beat. In this recipe I have ditched the pasta for some fresh zucchini instead, as I wanted to avoid that heavy feeling after a meal with pasta. Although this Swedish Meatballs with Zucchini Tagliatelle & Tomatoes, doesn’t contain pasta, I can promise you that it’s really is worth trying.
