Easy, cheesy and delicious is the simplest description I can think of to describe this turkey and courgette bake.

And, I think you’ll agree. You’ll be making this time and time again.

It’s another of my really quick healthy baked casseroles that I whipped up recently whilst trying to juggle my work and home life.

I know I’m usually all about making everything from scratch, but even I have to concede sometimes!

When I haven’t got the time to make a sauce, using a tin of condensed soup, as I did in this turkey and courgette bake makes for a perfect substitute.

If you have the time you could of course make a cheese sauce from scratch. The one in my low-cost healthy lasagne would be ideal.

This is a great balanced meal with the lean turkey providing half of your daily protein needs.

Plus, when serving I add some extra vegetables to bulk it up a bit further like 80g of green beans per person or 80g of sweetcorn. Both of which are just frozen vegetables that I microwave whilst the turkey and courgette bake is in the oven.

Just grill your turkey breasts whilst your potatoes are cooking.

  2. Zucchini is seriously sneaking its way into EVERYTHING these days! EVERYTHING! haha!!! Except for ALL the food that I make – ha! Perhaps I do need to change this though because I do love the veggie… Or wait, fruit?! 😉

      It is making it’s way into everything, you’re right GiGi.

      And I’m pretty sure we can find some kind of decent substitute for you in this dish. In fact maybe you could just make Turkey and Salmon Bake? Ha ha 😉

  3. Neil, What a fantastic bake! So dreamy and creamy and yet so darn healthy! I try making things from scratch most times, but sometimes life is too hectic to – and like you did here, I too depend on packaged goods to make my dinner planning a bit easier – and you kept it healthy still!

      Thanks Shashi, it’s difficult making everything from scratch all the time especially when you’ve got blog posts and new recipes to trial out too isn’t it?

      Still, we do try don’t we. And, I was really happy with how this healthier bake turned out, even though it wasn’t with the normal homemade sauce I would have made.
