Grain Free Pizza Sauté

Do you crave pizza as much as I do? Last week Colby baked a frozen pizza and tried to hide it from me. He knows how bloated and miserable I get when I eat it, but he also knows how much I love it! When I came home, the whole apartment smelled of my favorite food. Colby urged me to cook something else instead of searching the fridge for the leftover pizza. Here’s what I came up with:

This sauté of turkey, bell peppers, spinach, onion, and marinara sauce topped with shredded cheese really hit the spot. It was quick and easy to make, which is key when you’re craving pizza fiercely!

Ingredients:
4-6 oz lean ground turkey
1 tbs olive oil
1 tbs dried Italian herbs
1/2 onion, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
Large handful of spinach
1/2 cup good marinara sauce
2 tbs shredded parmesan or mozzarella (exclude if strict paleo)

1. Brown the turkey in a skillet, breaking it up into little chunks with a spatula. Once cooked through (no longer pink inside), set aside.
2. In the same skillet, heat olive oil. Add the diced onion and bell peppers. Sauté until tender, about 5 minutes.
3. Add the spinach and stir until wilted. Add the Italian herbs, ground turkey, and marinara sauce. Cook until heated through.
4. Serve with a sprinkling of cheese!

While it’s not quite pizza, the flavors are spot on and the protein in the turkey will keep you feeling satisfied.
