PREP THE ZUCCHINI:

In a large skillet set over medium-high heat add olive oil, onion, and ground turkey. Cook, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes or until the meat is browned. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Add the pasta sauce to the pan with the meat and simmer for 3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
BAKE AND SERVE:
Bake for 22-25 minutes, or until the zucchini is fork-tender and the cheese is golden.
