- Sauté one cup of lean #groundturkey in a pan. Add salt, pepper,and garlic powder. Break up the meat with a wooden spoon as you stir.
- Once the turkey meat is browned, it is time to add my version of marinara sauce by using the ingredients shown below. Give it a good stir and turn down the heat to medium-low. Keep an eye on it until the sauce reaches the consistency you like.At this point, you can bring a pot of water to boiling point and cook the #pennepasta. Once the pasta is cooked, drain it, and combine with the sauce. Turn off the heat and keep the lid on. It’s time to make the Red Cabbage Slaw as side dish.
- For the slaw: chop or shred half of a small red cabbage, toss it with some dressing, and top it with sprinkles of #sunflowerseeds. Let’s make the #vinaigrettedressing: please note that I do not measure my dressing. I add and taste as I go. Combine the ingredients shown in the picture, whisking the oil last. Taste and adjust if needed.
Time to serve. Dinner is ready!
