Instructions Checklist
  • Squeeze zucchini in a potato ricer or clean kitchen towel to remove excess moisture. Transfer to a bowl; add beef, millet, garlic, parsley, egg, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Gently combine using 2 forks. Roll mixture into 1 1/2-inch balls and arrange on a rimmed baking sheet.

  • Preheat broiler with a rack in upper third. Drizzle meatballs with oil; toss to coat. Broil, rotating sheet once, until golden on top and cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes. Serve over squash, with marinara, cheese, and basil.
