Summer Pasta Bolognese

12 oz fettuccine
2 T evoo
1 lb ground turkey
salt and pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced (i always add more) :)
1.5 pounds beefsteak tomatoes (about 3); chopped
1/2 cup dry white wine (if you don't have wine on hand, chicken stock is a good substitute)
1 small zucchini, coarsely grated (my kids loved grating the zucchini)
3/4 cup fresh basil leaves, torn (another job you can have your kids do!)

cook the pasta according to package directions. set aside.
heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the turkey and season with s & p.
add the garlic and cook for another minute. add the tomatoes and wine and simmer, until the sauce has slightly thickened, 4-5 minutes.
remove from heat and fold in the zucchini and basil. serve over pasta. i topped with parmesan cheese, of course!
