Turkey Stuffed Zucchini

I've seen like a million posts floating around Pinterest that gave me the idea for this one. I made this ground turkey mixture all the time to eat throughout the week. So I figured for dinner, I'd just shove it in some hollowed out zucchini and BOOM! dinner is SERVED.

2 zucchinis
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 green pepper, chopped
3 cloves, minced
1 lb ground turkey breast
8 oz tomato sauce
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place aluminium foil on baking sheet.

Wash zucchini, chop off ends, cut in half lengthwise. Using a spoon, hollow out middle of zucchini. Set on baking sheet.

In a large skillet, sautee onions and green peppers in olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Add in cloves of garlic and ground turkey breast. Season with pepper, basil and oregano. Cook until turkey breast is fully browned. Add in tomato sauce and red pepper flakes.

Spoon mixture into hollowed zucchinis. Cook 25-30 minutes until zucchini is fork tender.
