I made this today and quite liked it. I had it on brown rice instead of pasta. It freezes well and makes a nice lunch.
1 lb lean ground turkey/chicken
1 cup chopped onion
1 clove of garlic minced
1 cup chopped red pepper
1 cup chopped carrot (I used grated because I had some)
1 1/2 cups tomato sauce
1 small can diced tomatoes (I added this)
1 1/2 cups salsa
1 19 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp oregano
12 oz bow tie pasta (I cooked 1 cup raw brown rice)
Low-fat sour cream
Shredded reduced fat cheddar cheese
Chopped green onions
Spray a large non-stick skillet with Pam, or a little olive oil. Cook ground turkey, breaking up with a spoon. Add onions, garlic, red pepper, and carrots. Cook another 5 minutes, stirring until veggies are tender.
Stir in the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, salsa, =beans, chili powder, oregano and cumin. Add salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil and lower heat. Cover and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Cook pasta or rice. Drain.
Serve on top of rice or pasta with any desired toppings.
