Super lean and packed with protein, turkey is a great addition to this delicious pasta recipe. Turkey pieces are combined with two types of tomato (sun-dried and oven roasted), sweet onions, parsley and garlic for a sauce that packs a serious flavour punch. In this recipe, we’ve used wholewheat penne as the nuttier flavour works brilliantly with the fresh flavours of this dish and will leave you feeling fuller for longer. Serve in bowls and dig in!
