One Pot Mexican Pasta
Yesterday was a busy one for me. I was supposed to continue with my Spring Cleaning, but some unexpected errands and appointments showed up, which meant that I was in and out of my house.
By the time dinner rolled around, I needed something that I could get cooking and on the table in 30 minutes or less. This pasta dish does just that.
Thank you once again to Damn Delicious for another winner. Please do check out Chung-Ah, she has some of the yummiest dishes EVER.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound ground turkey
1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce
2 cups salsa, homemade or store-bought
2 cups cooked elbows pasta
1 Roma tomato, diced
1 cup corn kernels
1 cup canned black beans, rinsed
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 avocado, halved, seeded, peeled and diced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium high heat. Add ground turkey and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the beef as it cooks; drain excess fat.
Stir in tomato sauce and salsa until well combined. Add pasta, tomato, corn and black beans, and gently toss to combine.
Stir in cheese until melted through, about 1-2 minutes.
