If you've got a hankering for an eye-opening pasta sauce, try this spicy simmer of onion, ground turkey, bell pepper, canned corn, chili powder, oregano, tomato sauce and BBQ sauce. You can make it as mild or as wild as you wish!
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 1 (8 ounce) package rotini pasta
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 8 ounces ground turkey
- 1 green bell pepper, chopped
- 1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 tablespoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
- 3/4 cup barbecue sauce
In a large pot with boiling salted water cook rotelle pasta until al dente. Drain.
Meanwhile, in a large non-stick skillet heat oil over medium-high heat, add onion and cook until onion for 2 minutes, or until softened. Add ground turkey and cook until no pink remains, about 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in chopped green bell pepper, corn, chili powder, dried oregano, salt, tomato sauce, and BBQ sauce. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until slightly thickened, about 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
In a large serving bowl, combine the turkey mixture with the pasta. Serve immediately.
