  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 zucchini medium, diced medium
  • 1/2 cup yellow onions diced small
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 pound ground turkey sausage
  • 15 ounces diced tomatoes can, no sugar added
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste no sugar added
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 sweet potatoes medium, peeled and sliced into thin circles
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese fat-free, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese grated
  • 2 tablespoons parsley fresh, chopped


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 inch casserole dish with non-stick spray and set aside.
  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil. Once hot, add the zucchini, onions, and garlic. Cook just until the onions begin to soften. Add the turkey sausage, breaking it up in to small pieces, and cook until no pink remains. Stir in the diced tomatoes, tomato paste, and Italian seasoning. Cook, stirring frequently, just until the mixture begins to simmer. Remove from heat.
  • Lay the sweet potato circles into the bottom of the prepared casserole dish. Pour the sausage mixture over the top and sprinkle with mozzarella and parmesan. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until potatoes are tender. If the cheese begins to turn too brown, lightly cover with foil and continue to cook.
  • Sprinkle with parsley before serving.
