Ingredients

  • Nonstick Cooking Spray
  • 1 pound uncooked 99% lean ground turkey
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 8 oz mushrooms thinly sliced--these can be fresh or from a can/jar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 12 oz roasted red peppers packed in water, drained, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • 15 oz canned diced tomatoes
  • 30 oz canned tomato sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil fresh or dry, minced
  • 12 oz uncooked whole wheat pasta penne, cooked according to package instructions
  • 1.5 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese divided
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated, divided

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat a 9 x 13 baking dish or a large casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a skillet brown the turkey, onion and mushroom. Make sure all the liquid has evaporated.
  3. While the meat is browning go ahead and cook the pasta according to the package directions and then drain and set aside.
  4. Now add the salt, garlic, red pepper flakes, roasted red peppers, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, Italian seasoning and basil to the turkey and veggie mixture.  Stir so that everything is combined well.

  5. Turn the heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes so flavors can blend really well.
  6. Now stir in cooked penne pasta, 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese and 2 tablespoons of the grated Parmesan cheese.
  7. Spoon the whole mixture into the baking dish.
  8. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses.
  9. Bake until cheese is melted and the dish is heated through. Usually it takes about 25 minutes.
