This time of year I am usually on candy overload so I like to make lots of clean meals to balance out all of the sugar and sweets. Veggie pasta dishes are one of my favorite things to make since you can pack in tons of veggies and lean protein to make a hearty, healthy, and filling meal. This recipe for Ground Turkey and Tomato Basil Zucchini Noodles is one I reach for often since it's easy to make and you can easily adapt it to use any veggies and meat you have at home.
The sauce it really the star of this dish and you won't believe how much flavor you can get in just 25 minutes on the stove. Make sure to choose a flavorful crushed tomato, I almost always buy San Marzano, so the sauce has lots of flavor and don't skip the Worcestershire sauce since it adds a ton of umami flavor to the dish. Top with Parmesan, ricotta, or mozzarella for one yummy, veggie filled dinner.
