Meatballs and zucchini noodles is a weeknight favourite in our home. This recipe, however, has a bit of a twist with the Chicken Liver Pate.

It’s well known that ox liver is a superfood with lots of vitamins and minerals and I often sneak it into our ground beef recipes. Chicken liver is just as nutritious and using the pate is just an easy way to save time and effort.

You can either top the recipe off with parmesan cheese or the Tomato Topping below (just omit the soy sauce).
