  • Step 1

    Slice the ends from the zucchini, peel away the outer skin and discard. Peel the zucchini into wide strips using a vegetable peeler to create to create pasta style ribbons. Add to a large bowl and sprinkle with half a teaspoon of salt. Toss to combine. Set to one side for 15 minutes to extract any excess moisture, then squeeze the zucchini to drain away any liquid.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    Heat the olive oil in a skillet over a medium/ high heat. Add the pancetta and cook through until crisp and golden. Remove from the skillet with a slotted spoon and set to one side.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Add the ground turkey to the same skillet. Cook through until browned all over. Set to one side.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    Melt the butter in a small saucepan over a low/medium heat. Add the cream cheese, parmesan, garlic powder; oregano, remaining salt and pepper. Stir to combine, cooking until the cheeses have melted.
    Step 4
  • Step 5

    Add the chicken stock to the saucepan. Stir well to combine with the melted dairy. Simmer gently for a few minutes to heat through and thicken to a creamy sauce consistency.
    Step 5
  • Step 6

    Whilst the sauce is cooking you can prepare the cheese and pancetta layer. Finely dice the onion and add to a mixing bowl along with the mozzarella, cheddar and cooked pancetta. Mix together well to combine.
    Step 6
  • Step 7

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Spoon half the ground turkey into the base of a medium oven proof dish. Ensure that you have created an even layer.
    Step 7
  • Step 8

    Now to create the ‘pasta’ layer. Take half of the zucchini noodles and layer them over the ground turkey. Again, ensure that this is even.
    Step 8
  • Step 9

    Now to add the sauce. Spoon half the cream cheese sauce over the top of the zucchini noodles. Ensure that you cover the zucchini and turkey evenly in the sauce.
    Step 9
  • Step 10

    Now for the cheese layer. Scatter half the grated cheese, onion and pancetta mixture over the sauce, zucchini and turkey. Again, ensure that this is in an even layer.
    Step 10
  • Step 11

    Next repeat the above layering processes with the remaining ingredients. Add a layer of turkey, zucchini, sauce and cheese. Ensure that everything is level so that the casserole cooks through evenly.
    Step 11
  • Step 12

    Cover the casserole in foil and transfer to the oven. Bake for 15 minutes. After this time, remove the foil and bake for a further 10-12 minutes. The casserole should be hot through, bubbling and golden on top.
