Hurrah for a turkey, pasta and 4-veggie combo that goes from cooktop to dinner table in less than 30 minutes!

Ingredients

1 1/2
cups (5 oz) uncooked bow tie pasta (farfalle)
1/2
lb fresh asparagus spears, trimmed, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces (about 2 cups)
1 1/3
cups (6 oz) fresh baby carrots, halved lengthwise
1
cup chicken broth
4
teaspoons cornstarch
1/2
teaspoon garlic-pepper blend
1
lb fresh turkey breast slices, cut into thin bite-sized strips
1
cup fresh whole mushrooms, quartered
1
can (14 oz) whole baby corn, drained, rinsed
1
teaspoon grated lemon peel

Directions

  • 1 In Dutch oven or large saucepan, cook pasta to desired doneness as directed on package, adding asparagus and carrots during last 2 to 4 minutes of cooking time. Cook until asparagus is crisp-tender. Drain.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in small bowl, combine broth, cornstarch and garlic-pepper blend; mix well. Set aside.
  • 3 Spray 12-inch nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Heat over medium-high heat until hot. Add turkey and mushrooms; cook 3 to 5 minutes or until turkey is lightly browned and no longer pink, stirring frequently.
  • 4 Add broth mixture; cook and stir just until mixture begins to thicken. Add cooked pasta and vegetables, corn and lemon peel; cook and stir until thoroughly heated. If desired, season with salt and pepper to taste.
Tips  

Turkey breast is a lean protein that supplies amino acids that give structure to the body in skin, cell membranes and muscles.

One pound of boneless skinless chicken breast halves can be used in place of the turkey breast slices in this recipe.

Garlic-pepper blend is a combination of garlic powder, salt and pepper. Look for the seasoning in the dry spices and herbs section of the grocery store. Or use 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp pepper in place of the garlic-pepper blend.
