I always love a simple & tasty way to enjoy a veggie packed meal.

And this recipe idea, which a friend recently shared with me, was the perfect way to do just that as well as end the weekend on a healthy note! 🙂

This jazzed up version of a basic pasta sauce sneaks in all sorts of green goodness. And tastes great too.

All you need:

Onion. Zucchini. Garlic. Frozen spinach.

Your favorite pasta sauce. Lean ground turkey. 

1

And just a few minutes to saute and stir!

Onion. Garlic. Olive oil.

2

Ground turkey. Salt. Pepper.

And if meat isn’t your thing, I’m sure that a meat substitute or white beans would taste great here too!

4

Zucchini. Shredded.

3

I used a mandolin slicer. However a grater would work too.

5

Pasta sauce. 

This Simply Enjoy Tomato Basil is one of my new favorites. It’s just the Giant store brand however has no extra additives (eh hmmm sugar) and tastes great!

6

Frozen spinach.

7

And you’re done!

8

Serve the sauce over fresh pasta or even spaghetti squash. Which I’ll be doing tonight with the leftovers 🙂

Or just eat it plain. It’s super tasty just as-is. Not that I would know 😉

  1. This sounds delicious! I never thought about grating a zucchini into it – I always just slive mine into chunks. I am definitely going to have to try it next time! Maybe it’ll trick my husband into eating them instead of picking around them!

  2. Looks SO delicious! All those extra veggies- perfection

  3. I think I would eat it as-is too! This sounds great.
