Turkey Pasta Arrabiata Recipe with Bernard Matthews | AD

*This is a paid post

Every New Year people make resolutions about all sorts of things but ones that crop up all the time are to work on a healthier lifestyle and diet. This year I haven’t really made any formal resolutions apart from our annual Bucket List but I have been looking at our diet, the way that we manage meals at home and the types of food we eat.

We have always cooked food in bulk, portioned it out and frozen it ready for an easy, healthy meal on a future date. But this has lead to us not cooking from scratch very often and my main issue with that is I feel like LP and Little Man are missing out on seeing me cook, learning how to cook and knowing exactly where the food we eat has come from.

So this year I am making a resolution to cook from scratch when I can but with such a busy lifestyle I need meals that I can cook fairly quickly. With this in mind I have created a twist on a typical Pasta Arrabiata recipe with the addition of Bernard Matthews Turkey Breast Pieces which are only 60 calories per serving and gluten free as well as being a great source of vitamins and minerals.

You can also make this turkey recipe with leftover turkey or even chicken. It will be absolutely delicious whatever meat you use and a great dish to keep the whole family happy.

If you would rather use lean ground turkey for this, follow the same recipe but fry off the turkey at the same time as frying the garlic and onions. If you’d like to bulk out the recipe even more you can add red pepper flakes or fresh sliced pepper. This penne arrabiata is a fantastic one pot pasta dish which can be served simply with a sprinkling of grated parmesan cheese.
