This past sunday I started Weight Watchers, the points plus program. It's been 2 full days and I've already planned out my whole week of food. I know that's totally insane but for me it's totally normal. I'm kinda of crazy like that and love to plan and be organized. I have been brainstorming some recipes that are great and low in points. Here's one to try, with or without pasta! This can also be done all in one pan or pot, less dishes to clean! Yay!
Turkey and Zucchini Bolognese
1 cup store bought Marinara Sauce ( I like Rao's, 3 points)
1/4 pound lean ground turkey (3 points)
1 zucchini, quartered and sliced thinly (0 points)
Olive Oil flavored Pam Non-Stick Spray (0 points)
NOTE: If you use one serving of pasta, which is 2 oz uncooked, add 6 points, 5 points for whole wheat. Also you can omit the pasta and replace it with 1/4 cup uncooked quinoa for 4 points. Another idea is to omit the pasta or quinoa and use another 1/4 pound ground turkey. For this add 4 more points. If you are forgoing the pasta or quinoa, try adding 1/2 cup canned cannelini or black beans, add 2 points. The more vegetables the better, mushrooms would be a good addition!
