  2. Drizzle olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat and saute onion, celery and garlic until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Add ground turkey (or beef) and cook until crumbled and brown, draining excess liquid as necessary.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for about 30 minutes.
  4. For the zoodles, drizzle olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and saute garlic until fragrant.
