Clean Eating Weeknight Spaghetti

Sometimes you just need a quick, easy meal that your kids will love, and not mind eating at least once (or twice) a week;) That is exactly why Tiffany over at The Gracious Pantry thought when she created this tasty clean version of spaghetti! And who doesn't love spaghetti?? Lady and the Tramp anyone? 

(Makes 8 servings)

1 lbs. whole grain spaghetti noodles
1-1/2 lbs. lean, ground turkey meat
3 medium zucchini, grated
1 tbsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. onion powder
1 tbsp olive oil
1 jar clean spaghetti sauce (or as much as you like)

Step 1 – Cook your pasta to package directions.
Step 2 – While the pasta cooks, place turkey meat, zucchini, garlic powder, onion powder and olive oil into a large frying pan and cook until the meat is done. You are not using a lot of oil, so be sure to keep the heat at a lower setting. The water from the meat will help to cook everything.
Step 3 – Drain your pasta and return to the pot.
Step 4 – Stir in the meat and then the sauce.
No nutritional content available as sauce and sauce amounts will vary with this recipe.
Eat and Enjoy!
