Cheesy Turkey Penne

Pasta is just easy. And you can do so much with it. This pasta dish was super simple. I used jarred sauce. All I really had to do was boil the noodles, cook the turkey, and mix together with the rest of the ingredients. By no means was this a difficult dish.

By no means was it a plain dish. This is definitely a meal that will make its way into my recipe box of all my repeat dishes. It was perfect to make this pasta after work, when I just want to eat and eat quick.

Like I said, simple. But good.
The bread doesn't need a recipe. Spread pesto on a piece of bread, sprinkle with garlic, and bake!

I'm submitting this recipe to Presto Pasta, this week hosted by Simona of Briciole. After Thursday go check out all the other pasta dishes!

1 clove garlic, minced

2 tbsp Parmesan


1. Boil the penne noodles per the directions on the box. Cook the turkey over medium heat in a skillet sprayed with Pam.
