You can prepare skewers of meatballs and zucchini as a second course, but also for an appetizer or finger food.
Meatballs are a signature dish of Italian cuisine. Every Italian family has their own personal recipe that is passed down from mother to daughter.
With this recipe, I show you how easy it is to bring the true flavor of Italy into your home.

How to prepare Meatballs and zucchini skewers

Prepare the mixture for the meatballs
