An easy weeknight meal that comes together quickly in one pan, combining a lean turkey bolognese with spiralized sweet potato noodles for a healthy pasta night.

If you love turkey bolognese and sweet potatoes, you’re going to love this easy one pan meal. I’ve combined my popular turkey bolognese sauce with spiralized sweet potatoes in one pan, all topped with melted mozzarella cheese, for a flavorful, protein and vegetable packed meal that’s easy to clean up.

Even the pickiest of eaters will love this dish – and the best part? The ingredients are minimal and ones you may already have in your kitchen. If you want to make this again and again but want to switch it up, try using ground beef for the bolognese or even chicken.

And if you notice that your spiralized sweet potato noodles break up when they’re cooked in the sauce, that’s okay – it’s actually easier to eat that way and it still tastes just as good, trust me!

Every scoopful has a little bit of gooey mozzarella cheese, for just enough cheesiness! This healthy and easy one pan meal will become a new weeknight favorite, quickly!

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 carrots, peeled, diced
  • 1 small red onion, peeled, diced
  • 2 celery ribs, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 pound ground turkey, lean
  • 2.5 teaspoons oregano flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes or more
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 24oz jar tomato basil sauce
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled, Blade D, noodles trimmed
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • to garnish: chopped parsley or basil

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add in the carrots, onion, and celery. Cook until the vegetables soften and then add in the red pepper flakes, half of the garlic and let cook for 30 seconds or until fragrant.
  2. Push the veggies to one side of the skillet and then add in the ground turkey, crumbling with a wooden spoon. Season the meat with oregano, salt, pepper, and the rest of the garlic. Cook the meat until browned and then combine the veggies with the meat.
  3. Pour the sauce over the meat and veggie mixture and stir until combined. Season again with salt and pepper and add in the sweet potato noodles. Let cook for 7 minutes to let the sweet potatoes cook. Once cooked through (taste a noodle, it shouldn’t be crunchy, more al dente.)
  4. Sprinkle the top of the skillet with the cheese and cover and let the cheese melt, about 3 minutes. Uncover, garnish with parsley or basil and serve!

Hillary Gras says:
Love recipes like this with some pre-made ingredients! less intimidating and easy. I can apply this for whole30 too without Cheese and a whole-30 pasta sauce (like Raos or TJ's Garlic!)
Ali Maffucci says:
Thanks for the feedback, Hillary!
Lisa says:
What’s blade D? I have the kitchenaid attachment that spiralizes?
Diane Mandile says:
Choose whichever blade makes medium noodles? They should look sort of the size of linguine probably.
Carly Glazer says:
Blade D is going to be the thinnest (spaghetti) blade!
Diane Mandile says:
I am planning to make this tonight. I have a vegetarian in the family so I will substitute mushrooms for the turkey. I know it will still be very tasty.
Inese says:
At which point would you freeze it?
Carly Glazer says:
Hi Inese! We would probably freeze this before adding the cheese!
Diane C says:
This looks so delicious. What is the best way to warm up the leftovers without the sweet potatoes becoming mushy with extra cooking. Would it be best in oven or in a frying pan on the stovetop, what temperature and how long? Thanks
