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. 


And just a few minutes to saute and stir!

Onion. Garlic. Olive oil.


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!


Zucchini. Shredded.


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


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!


Frozen spinach.


And you’re done!


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.
