Turkey Mince, Sweet Potato and Zucchini Bake

Like summer is the season for salads, autumn is the season for warm, hearty casseroles! But this year we want to take care of our diet, so we're building up a lighter casserole. The main ingredients are minced turkey, sweet potato, and zucchini. We've added everything into the oven under a blanket of tomato sauce and some shredded mozzarella on top.

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper.
