Let’s start by bringing a pot of salted water to a boil and cooking 1/2 a pound of mini farfalle.
Al dente works best for this recipe, as we will also be baking our pasta!
Heat a tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat, and sauté 1 diced, medium onion….
1 shredded carrot…
And 1 clove of minced garlic in an oven proof skillet.
Cast iron is my favorite, but you could also use a stainless steel skillet. Just wrap the handle in foil if it has a rubber coating!
Next brown and season 1 pound of ground turkey with 1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning, salt and pepper to taste.
Once your turkey has cooked through, take your skillet off the heat and layer 1 cup of thawed, frozen chopped spinach on top.
Layer your cooked mini farfalle over the spinach…
And 1 jar of your favorite marinara sauce on top of your pasta!
Dollop some ricotta cheese on top…
And last but not least, top it all with a few handfuls of parmesan cheese!
Pop this into a 400 degree oven for 20 -25 minutes…
Or until this happens.
Hummina, hummina, hummina!
Dinner is on the table and can you believe it, you might even have time to catch up on Housewives!
