1 tablespoon Italian Seasoning

1 tablespoon vinegar

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

3 tablespoons super fine almond flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 egg, beaten


5 (7 oz) packages Miracle Noodles or equivalent shirataki noodles


1.  Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F and cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil.  

2.  Make the sauce first so that it can simmer as the meatballs bake.  Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium heat.  Add garlic and cook until softened, 2 minutes.

3.  Add remaining sauce ingredients and mix well to combine.

4.  Bring to a low simmer.  Simmer until meatballs are finished cooking.

5.  In a large bowl, mix all meatball ingredients until well combined.

6.  Use an 1/8 cup measure (or 2 tablespoons) to scoop out meatball mixture.  Roll into meatballs and place on the cookie sheet.

7.  Bake for 14-17 minutes until browned on top and cooked through. 

8.  Combine meatballs and sauce in the sauce pan.

9.  Add shirataki noodles to a colander and rinse under hot water until heated through.  Dry with paper towels.

10.  Serve spaghetti noodles with sauce and meatballs on top.
