Ingredients

12 ounces fettuccine (3/4 box)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound ground turkey
Kosher salt and pepper
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 1/2 pounds beefsteak tomatoes (about 3), chopped
1/2 cup dry white wine (such as Sauvignon Blanc)
1 small zucchini, coarsely grated
3/4 cup fresh basil leaves, torn

Preparation

Cook the pasta according to the package directions.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the turkey and season with 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Cook, breaking up the turkey with a spoon, for 3 minutes.

Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and wine and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the turkey is cooked through and the sauce has slightly thickened, 4 to 5 minutes.

Remove from heat and fold in the zucchini and basil. Serve over the pasta.
