Okay, so I've been fairly addicted to these "skillet" meals lately, but I'm telling you, once you make one you'll see why!! It's just one of the easiest ways to get good food on the table fast and this Turkey and Zucchini Skillet video will show you just what I mean. This was one of those, "hungry-for-dinner-with-no-plans-in-mind" meals. I came home on a Tuesday, opened the fridge and just pulled out what I had on hand. I love this meal because really you are sitting down to a bowl of veggies mixed with a little lean protein but somehow it feels like a much heartier meal. This is a good one to make when you feel like having a big bowl of comfort food but don't want to break the "calorie" bank. As always, use this recipe as a guide and adaptt it to whatever you have hanging around in your fridge. You could take this one a lot of different ways!
  Extra lean ground turkey 1⁄2 Pound
  Garlic 3 Clove (15 gm)
  Onion 1⁄2 , cut into half moons
  Zucchini 4 Medium, cut into quarters then chopped
  Tomatoes 3 , chopped
  Dried oregano 1 Tablespoon
  Olive oil 1 Teaspoon
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste

Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat and add a teaspoon of oil. Once the olive oil is hot, stir in your onions and garlic along with a pinch of salt. Let them go for about five minutes or so or until your onions are beginning to look translucent.

Using a rubber spatula, stir in your ground turkey be suring to break it up into small pieces. You want to combine the ground turkey with the onions and garlic. Let the turkey cook for five minutes or so before adding in your zucchini, tomatoes, oregano, and another pinch of salt and pepper. Pop a lid on and allow to cook another five minutes or until your veggies are cooked to your desired tenderness!

Serve over a bed of spaghetti squash and top with some red pepper flakes and parmesan cheese. Enjoy!!
