$2 Food Bank Smoked Turkey Pasta
Ingredients for 5 Smoked Turkey Pasta servings
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 13oz smoked turkey sausage, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 medium (white) onion, chopped
- Two 15oz (30oz) no salt added canned crushed tomatoes
- 2 Ramen noodle chicken seasoning packets
- 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning (if you have it – optional but recommended)
- 10oz whole wheat pasta (or your choice
- 2 ½ cups water
- 16oz frozen spinach
- Sea salt & pepper to taste
- Fresh lemon
Set a large pot on medium high heat. Once hot add olive oil and sausage. Cook the sausage until sear marks appear along the edges, about 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium.
Add garlic, onion, tomatoes, seasoning, pasta and water. Bring to a simmer. Use tongs to stir the pasta as it cooks and softens. Continually stir and fold the ingredients together as the pasta cooks, about 8 – 10 minutes. Cover the pot if needed but monitor to make sure it is not burning, and as more liquid as needed.
When the pasta is nearly 95% cooked, fold in the frozen spinach to thaw.
Season to taste with sea salt & pepper.
