Description

This taco pasta recipe also reheats very well. I made this dish for dinner one night, and we still got 3-4 servings out of it to take again for lunch or do leftovers for dinner.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 12 oz whole wheat noodles of choice
  • 1 cup diced red onion
  • 2 cups canned diced tomato with no salt added
  • 4 oz diced olives
  • 1 pound 93/7 ground turkey
  • 1.5 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon EVOO
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups of water

Instructions

  1. Set a large pot over medium heat. Add EVOO, and saute red onion and garlic until onions start to become translucent.
  2. Add ground turkey to the pot and cook until completely browned.
  3. Add water, all seasonings, and noodles to the pot and cover. Once water comes to a boil, turn down to low. Simmer for 10-12 minutes until noodles are cooked. If all the water isn’t adsorbed into the noodles, simmer the pot without a cover for a few minutes.
  4. While on low heat, stir in diced tomatoes, cheese, and olives. Stir until cheese is melted.
  5. Serve.
