Rarely am in the mood for Italian food, but when I am, the craving comes on STRONG. It’s warm, it’s comforting, and it’s filling. But with that said, typical Italian food is full of carbs, and AIN’T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT!
Kidding, kind of. I don’t have a problem with carbs (in moderation) but pasta and noodles are not my carbs of choice… which brings me to this recipe that is an Italian staple (at least in America).
I got this recipe from one of my favorite bloggers – Gina of Skinnytaste. The only adjustments I made:
1. I used ground turkey instead of ground beef.
2. I do not have a Mandolin Slicer so instead of my zucchini being sliced in long planks, they were sliced in rounds, using my BOMB food processor.
This also makes for fantastic leftovers – I took mine to work for lunch!
