Noodles, sauce and meatballs are all essentials to pasta, but as this zucchini pasta recipe from A Cozy Kitchen proves, you can still enjoy this classic Italian dish in a much healthier way.

Rather than traditional carb-heavy noodles as a base, this recipe uses a spiralizer to form perfect zucchini noodles. The recipe becomes even more healthy by swapping out beef-based meatballs for ones made from turkey meat. Not skimping any on flavor, these meatballs are packed with herbs, spices, cheese and hearty bread crumbs. For the sauce that tops it all off and brings the meal together, it's a simple combination of olive oil, tomatoes, onion, garlic, sage, parmesan and some spicy crushed red pepper. Coated in sauce, the texture looks identical to a classic spaghetti and meatball dish.
