Vegan Italian "Meatball" Zoodles

  These Italian meatball zoodles are amaze-balls! Get it?! Seriously though these Italian "meatballs" are packed with Italian flavor and pair perfectly with these Italian Zoodles! These vegan "meatballs" are made out of pinto beans. This recipe is in two parts. One for the "meatballs" and the other for the zoodles to make it a little easier to read. The "meatballs" are great for food-prep! Once my garden zucchini is ready to harvest I know I will be making this dish all summer
