1 Tbsp olive oil

1 (28 oz) can crushed tomatoes

½ cup dry red wine

1 tsp. dried basil

Spiralize your zucchini and set aside on paper towels so that any excess water is soaked up. Feel free to sprinkle with a little salt to help with this.
Drizzle olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat and saute onion, celery and garlic until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Add ground turkey (or beef) and cook until crumbled and brown, draining excess liquid as necessary.
Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for about 30 minutes.
For the zoodles, drizzle olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and saute garlic until fragrant. Add zucchini noodles and cook for about 1 to 2 minutes until tender. *If you didn’t already add salt while the water was getting soaked up feel free to sprinkle a little on them now for flavor.
Top zucchini noodles with the bolognese sauce, serve and enjoy!
