Another quick and easy dinner dish for you!

I’ve made a version of this before but when Raw Spice Bar sent me some samples of their latest flavor kit and included a Sun-Dried Tomato Pizza spice in it, I knew this dish would be a perfect one to revamp using it.

I love this pasta dish in general because it’s a great way to get tons of veggies into one single dish.  Anytime I can do that, I’m a happy camper.

While I usually use a spicy arrabbiata sauce with this dish, I thought trying this sun-dried tomato pizza sauce would be a nice new take on the dish and I have to say, it held up very well!  While it was a milder in terms of spice, it offered a greater depth than the arrabbiata normally does.

REVAMPED SUN-DRIED TOMATO TURKEY & VEGGIE LOADED PASTA

Ingredients

  • For the Sauce:
  • RawSpiceBar’s Sun-Dried Tomato Pizza Spices
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp sun dried tomatoes, minced
  • 1 6oz can tomato paste
  • 4 tablespoons white wine
  • 1 cup water
  • pinch of salt
  • For the Pasta:
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 onion, finely diced
  • 1 red pepper, cored, chopped
  • 1 yellow pepper, cored, chopped
  • 1 orange pepper, cored, chopped
  • 1 medium zucchini, sliced and halved
  • 1 pound ground turkey breast
  • 3-4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 box of whole wheat penne pasta
  • Fresh shaved parmesan cheese

Instructions

  1. For the Sauce:
  2. Heat large skillet over moderate heat. Add in olive oil and when hot, add in the minced onion and garlic. Stir until soft.
  3. Add in the minced sun-dried tomatoes, RawSpiceBar’s Sun-Dried Tomato Pizza Spices and stir. Pour in the 4 tablespoons of white wine and let that simmer until reduced by half.
  4. Add in the entire can (6 ounces) of tomato paste and the cup of water. Switch over to a wire whisk and stir until combined. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer the sauce for 15 minutes before seasoning with kosher salt and black pepper.
  5. Pour in to a jar to cool and store in the fridge for a week, or use right away!
  6. For the Pasta:
  7. Add 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil to a sauté pan over medium heat and add the peppers and zucchini cooking until just soft (covering the pan with a lid will speed this process up a bit), tossing occasionally for even cooking.
  8. Meanwhile, in another sauté pan, add another 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil to pan over medium-high heat and add onions and garlic, cooking for about 5 minutes. Add the turkey to the pan with the garlic and onion and cook until at least 165 degrees F.
  9. Add the cooked turkey to the vegetables and cover with the pasta sauce, tossing until full covered
  10. Lower heat and cover the pan until the sauce just begins to bubble consistently
  11. Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to package instructions
  12. Drain the pasta and ladle veggie-packed spicy turkey sauce over it, top with shredded parmesan and serve!
