Zoodles with Turkey Marinara Sauce

I love spaghetti with meat sauce, but I wanted to find a way to lighten it up without sacrificing the taste. Zoodles, or zucchini noodles, are an amazing way to lower your carb intake and still get the same noodle-like consistency and taste. This is one of my favorite recipes!

  • 4 Zuchinni
  • 16oz Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast
  • 1C Diced Onions
  • 1/2C Chopped Fresh Basil
  • 4C Tomato Sauce
  • 2 Tbsp Minced Garlic
  • 1tsp Oregano
  • 1tsp Parsley
  • 1tsp Crushed Red Pepper (add less or more to vary spiciness)
  • 1/4tsp Rosemary
  • 1tsp Olive Oil
  • 1/2 cup Parmesean Cheese
  • I steamed the asparagus in the photo above as a side dish!

Cut ends off the zuchinni and spiralize with a spiralizer. I love this one! Set aside.

In a large sauce pan heat olive oil on medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook until soft, about 2 minutes.

Add ground turkey and cook thoroughly. Break up the pieces with a spatula as it cooks.

Once the turkey is cooked through add the tomato sauce. Mix in basil, oregano, parsley and crushed red peppers. Heat until sauce comes to a boil, about 3 minutes.

Mix in Zoodles. Let Zoodles cook for about 5 minutes or until tender, but still a bit crunchy.

Remove from heat and portion into 4 servings. Top with grated Parmesan cheese.
