Skinny Zucchini and Red Pepper Pasta

Also seen on Mommy to my Tommy


8 ounces 93% lean ground turkey
8 ounces pasta, plain, cooked
1 teaspoon italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 red peppers ( large, chopped )
3 clove(s) garlic ( minced )
4 tablespoons Olive oil
1/4 cup onion ( diced )
1 tomato
1/2 cup zucchini squash ( chopped )
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
to taste salt and pepper


Boil the water for the noodles. Before adding the noodles to the water, place the tomato in the water for 30 seconds. Carefully remove the tomato and slice a small "x" shape in the top. Peel the skin off the tomato using the "x" as a starting point. Once the skin is removed, cut open the tomato, remove the seeds, and finely dice. Cook the pasta according to the package's directions.
Over medium heat, cook the turkey, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, onion, and one tablespoon of olive oil until the turkey is browned. Add in the tomato, zucchini, and red pepper, stirring occasionally, until the zucchini and red pepper are tender, but not mushy. Mix in the grated parmesan cheese, salt and pepper to taste, and noodles. Stir in 3 more tablespoons of olive oil so the pasta isn't dry. Enjoy!
