I went to Smart & Final to do my shopping, using their LaRomanella brand I searched all the wonderful options they had in the store before deciding on what to make for our meal. I decided that pasta was going to for sure be on the menu.
I was pleasantly surprised by all the Organic pasta options they had in the store all for under $2, that's a great price for a pound of pasta!
Although I am not Italian, I love a good amount of pasta and bread! We love a good spaghetti night in our home. I'm a really big fan of adding some fresh ingredients and spices into my store bought sauce and making it really yummy!
First I chopped up my onion and my LaRomanella roasted red peppers. I used 1 small onion and 1 red pepper.
Then I threw them in with the 1 pound of ground turkey, started browning it and stirred all the ingredients together till they were cooked through.
I added LaRomanella Garlic pasta sauce to my meat mixture and let it cook through.
While my turkey was browning, I started boiling my pasta noodles. I choose the LaRomanella Organic Penne Pasta and cooked them just under aldente.
After it was cooked, I added the pasta to a 9x13 inch baking pan and poured the meat mixture over the top of my noodles.
Topped it with cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese, equal parts. And let it cook at 350 for 10-15 minutes or until cheese was melted.
I paired it with a simple spinach salad for my family's meal!
Here's what you'll need to make this:
1 lb. ground turkey
1 small onion
1 LaRomanella roasted red pepper
1 jar LaRomanella Garlic Pasta Sauce
1 lb. LaRomanella Penne Organic Pasta
Mozzarella, cheddar & Parmesan cheese
