Ingredients

  • 3/4 lb ground turkey
  • 2 cups gluten-free pasta
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tsp yellow mustard
  • 1 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 1 medium tomatoes, diced

Directions

In a large saucepan, bring 8 to 10 cups of water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 10 minutes or until pasta is cooked through.

Preheat a large skillet. Drizzle olive oil. Add ground turkey, and cook until golden brown.

Add chopped onions to turkey. Cook for 5 minutes until onions are translucent. Add chopped tomatoes, broccoli, mustard, soy sauce, salt and pepper. Cook until broccoli is tender, but not mushy, and the ingredients have created a light sauce on the bottom of pan.

In a large bowl, combine pasta with turkey sauce. Serve at warm or room temperature.
