This is really good! I like pasta, but it seems like such a heavy meal sometimes. Even my DH liked it and he is not a big pasta fan. This is from Self magazine Sept 2007. Per serving: 524 calories, 7.3g fat (1.2 saturated) 77.5 carbs, 10.3g fiber

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook pasta as it says on your package.
  2. Using a little vegetable oil or olive oil, pour a little in a large separate skillet and use medium-low heat. Cook the onion and pepper until tender not too crunchy, about 7 minutes.
  3. Turn up the heat to medium and add turkey. Cook for 8 minutes or until it is browned all the way through.
  4. Add marinara sauce and reduce heat to simmer. Do this for about 6 minutes for all the flavors to blend together.
  5. Put pasta in bowls and top with meat sauce and sprinkle Parmesan on top. Enjoy!

This healthy recipe is so quick and easy for a weeknight meal. Turkey is so mild tasting, that it really benefits from a tasty marinara sauce as hojo states. I also added some red pepper flakes and fresh basil, and browned the turkey with minced garlic to perk up the flavor. Thanks for sharing this one hojo!
