Spiralized zucchini noodles are all the rage, but here’s an even easier, taster way to eat “zoodles” instead of noodles, no extra gadget required.
Slice zucchini into thin strips and it starts that resemble the wide, flat pasta that holds lasagna together.
Layer those strips with fresh tomato sauce, lots of vegetables, lean turkey, and cheese…and you’ve got a one-dish Italian meal that everyone will love and will likely provide plenty of leftovers.
WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE
Using zucchini noodles eliminates refined carbs completely. Instead, this dish is filled with nutrient-dense vegetables like zucchini (obviously), peppers, garlic, spinach, and tomato. It’s protein-rich thanks to lean turkey and cheese, and without the empty carb calories, it’ll leave you full and happy, instead of full and sleepy. It’s also gluten-free.
