American Chop Suey

American Chop Suey

Introduction

This is a revamp of a classic in my childhood. When I look back on the old recipe (which was basically just like Hamburger Helper, but more bland), it sounds gross, so I decided to redo it to my grown up tastes This is a revamp of a classic in my childhood.

Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    2 cups small shaped whole wheat pasta cooked to package directions & drained
    2 tsp olive oil, divided
    1/2 lb Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast
    1 small onion, diced
    1 clove garlic, minced
    2 medium celery stalks, chopped
    1 small red bell pepper, diced
    1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
    1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
    1 tsp fresh chopped basil
    Salt & Pepper to taste

Directions

Cook all veggies in 1 tsp of oil in a large non-stick skillet. I recommend cooking celery & onion for a few minutes first and then adding the garlic & peppers. Remove from pan, add remaining tsp oil and saute turkey until no longer pink. Return veggie mixture to pan, top with canned tomatoes and crushed red pepper, stir well, cover and simmer for about 10 minutes. Pour sauce over pasta and toss to combine. Top with fresh basil just before serving. Makes 4 large one dish servings.
