Home | Recipes | C
Italian Pasta


  • 1 c Uncooked Rotini (Spiral
  • Pasta) -- I had multicolored
  • 2 ts Olive Oil
  • 1 md Onion -- sliced
  • 1 sm Green Bell Pepper, Seeded --
  • Cut into strips
  • 2 Garlic Cloves -- minced
  • 1/2 lb Turkey Breast -- cut into
  • Strips
  • 15 oz Can Garbanzo Beans
  • 15 oz Can Tomato Sauce
  • 3/4 tb Dried Oregano Leaves


Cook rotini to desired doneness as directed on package. Drain; keep warm.
Meanwhile, heat oil in large non-stick skillet over medium hear until hot. Add onion, bell pepper, garlic, and turkey; cook and stir 5 to 10 minutes or until turkey is no longer pink. ( I cooked the onion for awhile first, added the meat and pepper and then finally in the last few minutes added the garlic...I don't like over done garlic).
Add tomato sauce, beans and oregano; mix well. Bring to boil. Reduce heat; cover and simer 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
Serve over rotini.

Bonus idea.... Instead of rotini use radiatore (pasta nuggets) and cannellini beans.. with another type meat if wanted. This is another recipe in the same issue. They suggest to serve with parmesan cheese
