Healthy Recipes: Pasta Italiano

We all love pasta, and today's healthy recipe (made with turkey and paprika) is sure to become a zesty family favorite. Try it with whole wheat pasta to make it an even more hearty and healthy eating meal!

Makes 4-6 servings

1/2 pound lean ground turkey
1 bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced   
1 tablespoon paprika 
1 can (14-1/2 oz.) crushed tomatoes   
1 can (14-1/2 oz.) chicken or vegetable stock   
2 cups uncooked pasta (whole wheat if preferred)
2 cups broccoli florettes   
1 cup cauliflower florettes

Crumble ground turkey into skillet. Brown over medium-high heat for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add pepper strips and paprika, cook for 2 more minutes. Add crushed tomatoes, broth, and pasta to the skillet. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat, over, and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove lid (be careful, the skillet and steam are hot!) and arrange broccoli and cauliflower over the pasta. Replace lid and cook for 10 more minutes.
