Quick One-Pot Turkey Veggie Pasta (and a giveaway) #TimeForTurkey

Quick One-Pot Turkey Veggie Pasta (and a giveaway) #TimeForTurkey

Spring officially sprung this week! Along with the forecast of at least 10 more centimeters of snow in my neck of the woods. I know it’s Canada and winter likes to hang on, especially in Saskatchewan, but boy has this winter been a long one. I’m ready for it to be over. I am ready for spring! I’m ready for my trees to bud and my tulips to blossom. I’m ready to plant my garden, even wash my windows and just everything that spring brings with it. It’s such a great time of year where everything is green and fresh and new.  And spring also brings with it some special occasions that tend to bring families together to celebrate. We have Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Victoria Day and, of course, the Easter Bunny will be here very soon! And I LOVE any occasion that gets us all around the table to dig into a nice juicy roast turkey.

My mouth is watering already. Turkey, cranberries, gravy, stuffing and leftovers! That’s one of the best parts of roast turkey, the leftovers. It’s also almost time to restock my freezer with homemade turkey stock. It comes in so handy.

Of course you don’t need a special occasion to eat turkey. It’s so healthy, packed full of protein and other important nutrients. Turkey is also affordable, easy to prepare and extremely versatile. There are so many ways you can incorporate turkey into your meals. This Quick One-Pot Turkey Veggie Pasta is a great example of just how easy it is to prepare a healthy, delicious meal for your family with Canadian Turkey. Just grab some of that leftover turkey, a few simple ingredients and voila!

Quick One-Pot Turkey Veggie Pasta
Author: 
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4-6 servings
 
Ingredients
  • 2 cups cooked Canadian turkey
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 can diced tomatoes (796 ml)
  • 3 cups water
  • 250 gr pasta
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups packed spinach
  • ¼ cup capers
  • ¼ cup sundried tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 tbsp butter (optional)
  • ¼ cup grated Asiago cheese
Instructions
  1. Sauté onion in olive oil.
  2. Add garlic. Sauté an additional 2 minutes.
  3. Add tomatoes, water, salt, pepper and pasta.
  4. Bring to a boil.
  5. Lower heat to a simmer and cook until pasta is cooked through but still al dente.
  6. Add water along the way if pasta begins to dry out. The liquid will gradually reduce and leave a creamy, thickened sauce. Make sure there is some liquid left in the pan as pasta will continue to absorb until it begins to cool.
  7. In the last few minutes of cooking, add spinach, capers, sundried tomatoes and turkey.
  8. Mix to incorporate.
  9. Remove from heat.
  10. Add butter (for extra creaminess) and cheese.
  11. Serve.
Notes
Feel free to substitute any vegetables you have on hand for the spinach. Consider substituting with peas, swiss chard, asparagus, mushrooms, or kale.
