Turkey Meatballs with Zoodles

These turkey meatballs with zoodles are a perfectly healthy and delicious meal to prepare in the slow cooker for dinner. These meatballs get a lot of flavor from fresh spinach, Worcestershire, and feta cheese. The meatballs are prepared right in the crockpot with the sauce. The feta cheese really adds something special to these meatballs. For serving you will want to serve these over zucchini noodles but if you would prefer pasta works fine as well. You can make zoodles using a spiralizer or you can even buy them premade in the store but they are probably a bit expensive to purchase that way.
