How do I make it ?
Heat oven to 400°F.
Heat oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add zucchini; cook 5 min. or until tender, stirring occasionally. Drain in colander. Use back of spoon to press zucchini into colander to remove as much liquid as possible. Cool zucchini 5 min.
Place zucchini in large bowl. Add bread crumbs, cheese, garlic, egg and 1/4 cup basil; mix well. Shape into 18 "meatballs," using about 2 Tbsp. zucchini mixture for each ball. Place on rimmed baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake 15 min. Meanwhile, cook spaghetti as directed on package, omitting salt. About 5 min. before spaghetti is done, cook pasta sauce in large saucepan on medium-low heat until heated through, stirring occasionally.
Drain spaghetti; place on platter. Add zucchini balls to pasta sauce; stir until evenly coated. Spoon over spaghetti; sprinkle with remaining basil.
