Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 medium onion finely diced
  • 1 medium carrot finely diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 4 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 can 28 oz crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half warmed
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil
  • 4 medium zucchinis spiralized
  • Grated Parmesan cheese for topping optional

Instructions

  1. In a dutch oven or large skillet over medium-high heat, brown ground turkey, onion, carrot, and garlic until meat is no longer pink and veggies are lightly caramelized, stirring occasionally.
  2. Reduce heat to medium and slowly add red win to deglaze the pan, scraping up browned bits with a spoon. Stir in tomato paste until incorporated, then add crushed tomatoes.
  3. Bring sauce to a simmer over medium heat, then slowly stir in half-and-half. Season with salt and pepper to taste and add basil. Keep sauce warm until ready to serve.
  4. Just before serving, add zucchini noodles to pot and gently stir to coat noodles. Cover pot and let stand no more than 5 minutes for noodles to soften, then serve noodles immediately with Parmesan cheese if desired. Enjoy!
