Make it for the week! Turkey Chili with Quinoa Pasta

Posted in Food by Sarah on September 17, 2010

After a long day at work, the last thing I want to do is spend a lot of time in the kitchen chopping, dicing, and preparing dinner.  I am HUNGRY and would like food now, please.   One thing Torre & I do to short-cut the dinner routine is make meals on the weekends that will be ready in a jiffy on weeknights.  I’ll be posting these recipes as part of a series… the first recipe is quite easy to make and healthy to boot.

Turkey Chili with Quinoa Pasta



For the pasta, boil about 4 cups of water.  While you’re waiting for the water to boil, place the turkey in a large, lightly-oiled sautee pan.  Place the pan on low-medium and slowly brown the turkey.

Once the pasta water is boiling, toss a box of Ancient Harvest Quinoa pasta into the boiling water.

At the same time, place 2 cans of chili in a small soup pan and set to medium.  You could of course, use home-made chili for this, but this recipe is all about time-saving, not stove-slaving!

In about 8 minutes both your pasta and your chili will be ready and the turkey should be completely cooked.

Add the chili to the turkey and remove from heat.

Drain the pasta and then add the pasta to the turkey-chili.

Dinner is Served!

Enjoy immediately!  As much as you eat, you’re sure to have enough leftover to save for lunch or dinner tomorrow and maybe even the next day!
