An Alternative To Pasta

In an attempt to eat a little more healthy (please ignore the fact that I made Reese's Pieces cookies last night), I did a little kitchen experiment.

This is a mixture of four amazingly wonderful ingredients that, when combined, taste better than pasta and is incredibly good for you.

Start with a pound of ground turkey and get it browned up all nice and pretty. I like to use Italian seasoning as I brown turkey, no matter what I plan to make with it. I'm just funny that way.

At the same time, heat the largest pan you have and heat up 1/4 cup of water in it. It doesn't have to be boiling, just hot. Then add a bag of slaw and cook until it's tender. This is the kind of slaw that doesn't have sauce on it - it's just the pre-sliced-up slaw. You can use the broccoli kind, which would be amazing, or the plain slaw like I did here.

If you start the meat and then heat the water, they'll be done at the same time.

Once the turkey is browned, add it to the slaw. Mix in a small can of tomato sauce and a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies. Heat it all until it's warm and combined. The combination tastes amazing and doesn't have the weight of pasta when you've finished eating it.
