Lean turkey is simmered with tomatoes and pasta. More veggies and less pasta keep the recipe still tasting wholesome and satisfying.

Season the mixture with salt and pepper.

  • Pour tomato sauce and diced tomatoes over the turkey mixture; add garlic and stir. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook until the tomato sauce thickens, about 20 minutes.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; add penne and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain pasta and stir into the turkey mixture; toss to coat.

I followed the recipe but I added mild Rotel instead of the spicy sauce and added mozzarella to the top. Family loved it and yes I will be making it again. Read More

Very bland. While in the middle of making this I realized how bland it was going to be but at the 11th hour I did not have the skills or knowledge to turn the sow s ear into a silk purse. I would definitely have to play around with the recipe to give it some sort of distinction but I d rather just move on. Read More

Made as written but used fresh garlic. Make sure you use a high quality sauce as there is no seasonings other then salt and pepper in the recipe. I used Barilla spicy marinara for the sauce and used tomatoes that had Italian seasonings. After the 20 minutes of simmering I ended up needing a bit more flavor (but to each their own right) I sprinkled in some ground coriander seed and a fat pinch of brown sugar to offset the acidity of the tomatoes. Garnished with basil my family was pretty happy. Read More

My daughter has food allergies so this was a good recipe for the whole family. I added Oregano and Basil which gave it more flavor. I also browned the turkey with garlic and seasoned the meat with salt/pepper. Great family meal served with garlic bread and salad! Read More

This was excellent and hearty however I would prefer lean ground chicken as opposed to the turkey. Read More
