  • 2 large zucchini spiraled into pasta strings
  • ½ onion chopped
  • 1 24 ounce jar marinara sauce
  • ½ lb. cooked ground turkey meat or 16 ounces firm tofu
  • Fresh basil and cheese of choice for garnish


  • In a sauce pan, add olive oil and sauté onion on medium-high heat for 5 minutes until translucent. Add cooked turkey, tofu or leftover meat loaf to heat. Add marinara sauce and heat for about 5 minutes. Once warm toss in the zucchini zoodles and cook for about 1 minute trying not to overcook the zucchini so it doesn't pull much water from it. Serve immediately and garnish with your favorite cheese and basil.
