This crowd-pleasing, make-ahead pasta dish uses lean ground turkey instead of ground beef and sneaks in zucchini, which helps you eat more vegetables and helps keep the filling moist. Assemble the shells and then freeze to bake off on a busy day for easy, healthy meal prep at its best.
To make ahead: Prepare through Step 5. Wrap baking dish tightly with plastic wrap, then foil, and freeze for up to 1 month. Remove plastic wrap and bake frozen shells, covered, until marinara is bubbly, 45 to 50 minutes. Uncover and bake for 10 minutes more. Or, thaw shells in refrigerator overnight and bake as directed in Step 6.
