DIRECTIONS

  • Spiral slice (or long shreds if you don't have a spiral slicer) both zucchini, place in strainer in the sink while preparing the other ingredients (this will allow the zucchini to dry out).
  • Cut off and discard the stem ends of the Brussels sprouts, then halve them lengthwise. Place them in a small bowl, drizzle with olive oil, and then sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Place them on a small baking sheet cut-side up, and broil until slightly charred.
  • While sprouts are broiling, peel and mince the garlic. Small dice the shallot, carrot, and celery.
  • In a large, high-sided pan (or pot), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium until hot. Add the garlic, shallot, carrot, and celery. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 4 minutes, or until softened and fragrant.
  • Add the tomato paste to the pan; season with more salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until dark red and fragrant.
  • Add the ground turkey to the pan; season with a little more salt and pepper. Cook, frequently breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 4 to 6 minutes, or until browned and cooked through.
  • Add zucchini noodles (zoodles) to the pan, along with the charred Brussels sprouts. Season with salt and pepper, and mix well.
  • Turn heat to medium, add 1/4 cup water and cover for 4 minutes.
  • Serve and garnish with parmesan cheese (pecorino romano is best!), to taste. Enjoy!
