Categories: Italian, Pasta
Yield: 1 Servings

Cook rotini to desired doneness as directed on package. Drain; keep
Meanwhile, heat oil in large non-stick skillet over medium hear until
hot. Add onion, bell pepper, garlic, and turkey; cook and stir 5 to
10 minutes or until turkey is no longer pink. ( I cooked the onion
for awhile first, added the meat and pepper and then finally in the
last few minutes added the garlic...I don't like over done garlic).
Add tomato sauce, beans and oregano; mix well. Bring to boil. Reduce
heat; cover and simer 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

Bonus idea.... Instead of rotini use radiatore (pasta nuggets) and
cannellini beans.. with another type meat if wanted. This is another
recipe in the same issue. They suggest to serve with parmesan cheese
