Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • lbs. 99% lean ground turkey
  • 2 scallions, trimmed and minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • ¼ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp Hungarian paprika
  • 1 tsp salt, divided
  • 1¼ cups diced tomatoes
  • ¼ cup chicken stock
  • ½ cup low-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup basil, chopped
  • lbs. zucchini, cut or spiralized into “noodles”
  • 2 tbsp reduced-fat Parmesan cheese

Instructions

Heat one tablespoon of olive oil in a non-stick skillet, and cook ground turkey, stirring occasionally to break it up into smaller pieces.

Once the turkey has turned opaque, add the scallions, garlic, crushed red pepper, paprika and ¾ teaspoon of salt.

Add the tomatoes and chicken stock; cook for about 10 minutes until the sauce has thickened. Stir in the yogurt and basil.

In a separate skillet, quickly sauté the zucchini “noodles” until tender, about 2 minutes. Season with remaining salt.

Arrange the zucchini “noodles” on a plate and top with meat sauce. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve warm.
