Ingredient Checklist

  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 ¼ pounds ground turkey breast
  • 1 cup diced green bell pepper
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 3 cups marinara sauce
  • 2 cups baby spinach leaves
  • 4 zucchini, cut into noodle-shape strands



  • Step 1
    Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add turkey breast, green pepper, garlic, Italian seasoning, ground black pepper, salt, and red pepper flakes; cook and stir until turkey is lightly browned, 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Step 2
    Stir marinara sauce and baby spinach into the turkey mixture; cook and stir until marinara sauce is warm through, about 3 minutes.
  • Step 3
    Stir zucchini noodles into the sauce with tongs; cook and stir until the zucchini is slightly tender, 2 to 3 minutes.

Cook's Note:

I use an organic, no salt added, low sugar marinara sauce.

To make the zucchini noodles, use a spiralizer or vegetable peeler.
