20120604-083507.jpg

This plate is really good, filling and low calorie, each portion is approximately 2 cups and 238 calories per serving.

Noodles

  • i package of egg white noodles, like the Good Egg brand.

Boil Noodles in separate pot from turkey and vegetables. Cook and set aside.

Ground Turkey

First, purchase good ground turkey. The leaner turkey will have less fat than the regular turkey, so I opt for regular since some of the fats will go into the sauce to cook the vegetables.

  • 1.5 pounds of turkey
  • 1/2 chopped medium onion
  • ground cumin
  • pepper
  • cayenne

Sautee meat with onions and spices. Cook until done and drain turkey juices (fats) into a larger pan. Set meat aside. 20120604-083535.jpg

Pasta Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 cup chopped onion, diced small
  • 1 cup chopped bell peppers, diced small
  • 1 cup chopped spinach
  • 4 tablespoons of water
  • 1 Roma Tomato diced

Heat oil in a large pan, add garlic then onion, bell peppers – cook for about 5 minutes then add water, spinach and diced tomatoes.

Cook for another 7 minutes and add turkey to vegetable sauce, then add in the egg noodles. Serve with parmesan cheese.
