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.
