Turkey & Zucchini Marinara Goulash

Turkey and Zucchini Marinara Goulash

You know those dishes where you just throw a bunch of ingredients together that you either need to use before they expire or leftovers that need to get used up? Well, that was how this dish came to be and since it's concoction i've made it many times since!
This dish contains stewed tomatoes. If you are on a stricter carb count, you may want to leave them out. Tomatoes aren't terribly high carb, but I know that what may be low carb for me, could be too high for others. Still, overall this dish is considered low carb per serving.

Ingredients
1 lb ground beef or turkey (turkey is healthier y'all!)
4 medium zucchini-chopped
1 undrained 14.5 oz. can of diced or stewed tomatoes
1 24 oz jar of marinara (check for labels for lowest carb count)
A handful of Italian seasoning 
1 tablespoon garlic salt

Directions
In a large skillet, brown the meat. Drain if needed. Add remaining ingredients and bring to boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer. Stir occasionally. When it's all piping hot, bubbly, and the zucchini is soft, it's ready! It is so good y'all! I recommend topping it off with some shredded parmesan. 


* You could even change the style of the dish altogether and use Mexican seasoning and pizza sauce (check labels for lowest carb counts, but pizza sauce is almost always low carb). You could top this style dish off with a bit of shredded jack or cheddar cheese. Yum!

  2. This looks so good. I was wondering if it could be made in a slow cooker. Maybe brown the meat first? What do you think? Also what brand of marinara do you use?

Thanks for visiting, I love hearing from you, however it still always surprises me how many mean and rotten comments I receive, so please remember that I post what I eat merely as a suggestion of ideas for others. Low carbing is not cut and dry. What works for me may or may not work for you. Also, I live exclusively low carb, but I don't live my life counting them so I don't often include the net carb counts on recipes. Happy low carbing ya'll! :)
