One-Pot Pumpkin Turkey Pasta....When fall is coming, it always makes
me think of pumpkin patch, turkey and apple picking. I am sure you
would do the same if you live up north in the States.
Honestly, I always want to cook something not only limit to certain period of time of the year, but also throughout the year.
At the same time, I would love to have a versatile recipe that I can make a dish that would perfectly feed my small family instead of a crowd of 8+ people.
Listening to some stories of my co-workers, it hit home to think of families as small as mine. If there is no extended family around, celebration of special holiday could be very limited.
But everybody loves to enjoy holiday atmosphere flowing in the air, right? So, that was how this recipe, eventually, came to mind.
Given ground turkey and canned pumpkin are available in supermarkets throughout the year, you can make this dish at any time.
My extended family hates onion. If you happen to have family like mine, replace it with 1 tbsp onion powder.
You can interchange ground turkey with ground chicken.
1 lb Ground Turkey
1 can (14 oz) Pumpkin Purée
4 cups Chicken Broth (You may find Turkey Broth during fall)
1 lb Farfalle/Bowtie Pasta (or any kind of short pasta)
1 Medium White Onion (diced)
2 cloves Garlic (Minced)
1 tsp Ground Sage
1 tbsp Salt
1/2 tsp Ground Black Pepper
1 pinch Red Pepper Flakes
Dried Parsley Flakes
Grated Parmesan Cheese
2 tbsp Butter
2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
