Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add ground turkey, onion, and celery. Season with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.
  • Sauté the turkey mixture (breaking up the turkey into small pieces) until the turkey is cooked through or for about 10minutes.
  • Add garlic and sauté for 1 minute or so.
  • Add in the crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, diced tomatoes, oregano, and brown sugar.
  • Bring to a boil and then lower heat to medium-low and simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Add basil and stir to combine everything really well.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the zucchini noodles using a spiralizer or mandoline slicer.
  • In another skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the zucchini noodles and cook for about 3 minutes. If you cook them more than that, the zucchinis can be a little soggy. Don’t forget to stir occasionally.
  • When the zucchini noodles are ready, place them on four plates. Top with bolognese zucchini pasta.
  • Garnishing with parmesan.

Notes

  • Smaller zucchinis are preferred to super large ones as they're less watery.
  • There's no need to peel the zucchini before you spiralize them. Just make sure to give them a good rinse beforehand.
  • To save time, you can buy pre-made zucchini noodles.
  • To store: I don't recommend storing this recipe for too long as the zucchini can become watery. Try to eat this recipe within 2 days of making it.
  • To reheat: You can reheat the zucchini pasta by gently tossing it in a skillet.
