I LOVE any dish that includes Picadillo & this has become one of my staples. You can make this dish with regular ground beef & pasta if you wish but to keep the dish macro friendly I use lean ground turkey and protein pasta. Let’s get started!

Prep Time: 15 Min

Cook Time: 20 minutes

INGREDIENTS

Picadillo:

  • 93% Lean Ground Turkey
  • 1 Small Can of Low Sodium Tomato Sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Onion Powder
  • 2 teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • 2 teaspoons Complete Seasoning
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Mojo Criole Marinade
  • Pinch of Sea Salt

Pasta:

  • 1 Box Barilla Protein Plus Rotini Pasta
  • 1 Jar of Tomato & Basil Sauce
  • 1/4 Cup Shredded Low-Fat Mozzarella Cheese

 

 

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS

  • Put ground turkey on a plate & add your onion, garlic, salt & complete seasoning
  • Next add your mojo marinade and 1/2 of the low sodium tomato sauce
  • Allow to marinate for 10-15 minutes
  • While you let the turkey sit, bring water to a boil in a medium sized pot
  • Add pasta and a pinch of salt and stir.
  • As pasta cooks, add a little olive oil to a medium sized pan and add your seasoned turkey
  • Begin to cook on medium heat.
  • As it cooks, add in the 1/2 left of tomato sauce.
  • Stir the picadillo and cook until brown.
  • Take your pasta and drain the water from it and place back on stove on low heat.
  • Add in your cooked turkey to pasta and mix.
  • Add in your tomato and bail sauce and mix (I usually add half a jar)
  • Lastly, add 1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese and mix in for melted cheese goodness
