Introduction

This is a delicious recipe my hubby came up with. It's packed with healthy vegetables and is very low sodium, plus uses whole grain pasta to keep the carbs under control. At home we call it "glop" but that name doesn't do it justice because it's so delicious! (However I just found out that GLOP can stand for "Got Lots of Protein" which it absolutely does!)

Ingredients

    1-1/4 pounds ground turkey (97% fat free)
    4.5 c whole wheat rotini pasta (6 .75 cup "servings")
    1 med chopped yellow onion
    1 tbsp chopped garlic
    1 chopped bell pepper (yellow, red or orange)
    1 sm can no-salt chopped tomatoes
    2 c chopped fresh broccoli
    1 tsp low-sodium Worcestershire sauce
    1-1/2 c low sodium chicken broth
    1 tbsp olive oil
    1 tbsp oregano

Tips

Pasta will be soft. If you want the pasta to be more "al dente", boil separately for about 1/2 the normal cooking time, then add it when the mixture is almost done simmering. Continue to simmer until pasta is done.


Directions

Sautee garlic and onion in olive oil, brown meat, then add all the other ingredients. Simmer for approximately 1 hour.

Serving Size: Makes about 12 1-cup servings.
