Turkey and Zucchini Casserole

For a warm, hearty meal, nothing beats something cooked in a slow cooker...except maybe something cooked in a slow cooker and then baked in the oven with cheese on top!

Curb your hearty appetite with this low-carb meal and you'll leave the table with a full belly and without guilt.
