Turkey and Pepper Zucchini Pasta

I have been on a spiralizer spree lately. First was  "spaghetti" and meatballs which was delicious. This week I wanted to mix it up and have careless tacos. So I skipped the shell all together and put my taco toppings on zucchini noodles.

1 lb of ground turkey 
1 packet of taco seasoning 
1 tbsp olive oil 
1 clove garlic, minced or crushed
1 cup frozen corn
1 red bell pepper
1 onion
3 zucchinis 
Greek yogurt for topping

1) Spiralize three zucchinis, saving and chopping nubs of zucchini that does not fit in spiralizer. Set "noodles" aside.
2) Over medium high heat, cook turkey until fully browned. Turn off the heat then add 1/4 cup of water and 3/4 of the taco seasoning packet. Stir until water is absorbed and season evenly covers the meat. 
3) In the same pan, add the olive oil and heat for about one minute. Add onion, pepper, zucchini and garlic to the pan and saute for five minutes. Toss in frozen corn and rest of taco seasoning packet and cook until all veggies are tender. When veggies are cooked through, add turkey back to pan to combine flavors.
4) To serve, top a serving of zucchini noodles with taco/veggie mix and garnish as desired. I added Greek yogurt instead of sour cream and served it with a side of asparagus. It was DELICIOUS!!
