This dish has tons of vegetables – seriously!  It has green peppers, tomato, onion, carrots, zucchini, yellow squash, and kale!  Wow!  Needless to say, this stuff is REALLY good for you!

I used gluten free buckwheat noodles, but you can use any noodle of your choice.  You could even make zucchini noodles if you wanted.  Regardless of the noodles you use, you will LOVE how this stuff tastes – delicious!



  • Noodles of your choice (I used gluten free buckwheat noodles for mine)
  • Optional: Cheese of your choice for topping (I used Goat’s milk cheddar)

  • 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil

  • 1 yellow squash, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 zucchini, chopped into small pieces
  • 3 carrots, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 6-8 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. basil

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. thyme
  • 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. basil

1.) Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.  Brush olive oil over the baking sheet.  Prepare your meatballs by adding all the ingredients for the meatballs to a bowl and mixing well.  Form into balls and place on the prepared baking sheet.  Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes till the meatballs are cooked through.  Set aside.

2.) Chop all your vegetables for the sauce.

3.) In a large sauce pan, heat 1 Tbsp. of olive oil over medium heat.  Add your onions, green peppers, carrots, zucchini, and yellow squash.  Cook for 5 minutes.

4.) Add your tomatoes, vinegar, stevia, sea salt, garlic, oregano, and basil.  Increase the heat and bring to a boil.  Let cook for 20-30 minutes until the tomatoes have cooked down.

5.) Transfer the contents of the saucepan to a food processor.  Process on high until desired consistency is obtained.

6.) Prepare your noodles as directed on the package.  In a saucepan, add the noodles, sauce, and meatballs.  Heat to desired temperature, stirring often.

7.) Transfer to a plate and top with cheese if desired.  Season with sea salt and pepper, to taste.
