Ingredients

  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, extra virgin
  • 3 cups any short pasta
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 lb broccoli florets
  • 3 tomatoes, diced
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, grated
  • 1/2 cup parsley, finely chopped
  • Parmesan cheese, for serving

Instructions

  1. Preheat large Dutch oven or pot on medium heat and swirl oil to coat. Add onion and saute for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Add ground turkey and cook for 5 minutes, breaking into pieces and stirring with spatula. Add pasta, water, salt and pepper; stir and level with spatula.
  3. Then cover and cook on low heat for 10-12 minutes, checking after 10 minutes. Brown rice and any gluten free pasta cooks faster than wheat.
  4. When past is al dente (not too soft, so it doesn’t become a mush), turn off heat and add broccoli, tomato and garlic .Stir, cover and let stand for 5 minutes.
  5. Add parsley, gently stir and serve hot with grated Parmesan cheese on top.

Notes

Store: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 days. I wouldn’t recommend to freeze it.
