With this hearty dish, the pasta cooks right in the sauce for a quick and easy one-pot meal. Turkey, mushrooms, and spinach give it a light touch. Instead of fresh turkey, you could use leftover turkey from a Thanksgiving feast! For a lower-carb version, use zucchini noodles instead of linguini.

  • canola oil
    2 tsp
  • boneless turkey breast (cut into 1-inch pieces)
    3/4 lbs
  • frozen chopped onion
    3/4 cup
  • garlic (minced)
    2 tsp
  • salt
    1/8 tsp
  • freshly ground black pepper
    1/4 tsp
  • pasta sauce (reduced-sodium, no-sugar-added)
    3/4 cup
  • water
    1/2 cup
  • sliced baby bella mushrooms
    2 cup
  • fresh whole-wheat linguine (broken into 4-5 inch pieces)
    3 oz
  • ready-to-eat spinach (washed)
    2 cup
  • fresh basil (torn into bite-size pieces)
    1/2 cup
  • sharp cheddar cheese (shredded, reduced-fat)
    1/4 cup
  • sour cream (reduced-fat)
    3 tbsp


  1. Heat oil in a medium=size nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add turkey, onion and garlic. Sauté 3 minutes, turning turkey pieces to brown all sides. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  2. Add the pasta sauce, water, mushrooms and linguine. Stir to mix well. Bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium, cover with a lid, and cook 3 minutes. The linguine should be cooked through. Add a little water if sauce is dry before pasta is cooked.

  3. Add spinach and basil, stirring until spinach wilts. Remove from the heat and sprinkle the cheese on top. Spoon sour cream over cheese. Serve on 2 dinner plates.

  4. Cook’s Tip: It’s important to use fresh pasta from the supermarket for this recipe. Fettuccine can be used instead of linguine.

    Delicious! The basil, sauce, and cheese are an amazing flavor combo. Wasn't able to locate fresh pasta, but tasted great anyway.
