Zucchini and lentil pasta with meatless balls and homemade marina

This was really good! It's just spaghetti with meatless balls #2 but made with Birds Eye Steamfresh Veggie Made Penne, which is made from zucchini and lentils.

I got the Birds Eye Steamfresh Veggie Made Penne With Olive Oil variety, but I only used the pasta part. There are 2.5 servings per 10 oz. bag, with a serving size of 113 grams and 160 calories.

In addition to the pasta parts, there are some extra pellets. I assume these are the olive oil sauce. I didn't use those.

That's 100 grams in my small sauté pan. I could have used a little less even.

I used my spaghetti with meatless balls #2 recipe, previously frozen. I put the frozen vacuum sealed bag in the sous vide for 30 minutes at 140°F.

I added the reheated sauce and meatballs to the frozen pasta. Warmed at heating level 4 on my induction hotplate until it started to bubble, then reduced to 2. Once the excess water from freezing the pasta sauce evaporated, to heat level 1. I cooked it for 10 minutes, but it probably only needed 8 minutes.

This was really good and much less carb-y than pasta! Also, much less work than spiralizing a zucchini.
