No “helper”, not even a pot of boiling water, is needed for this tasty skillet pasta. Ground turkey, bacon, tomato, seasonings, and melty american cheese come together for a delicious weeknight meal.
Track it using MyFitnessPal (based on 93% ground turkey).
Elbow pasta is ideal because its small size and shape allow it to cook quickly. If you’d like to use another pasta shape, you will need to adjust the cooking time accordingly; Longer for larger pastas like penne and shorter for smaller pastas like orzo. It will also affect how “saucy” the final dish will be.
I like adding the green pepper with the pasta so it retains a bit of its texture, but if you prefer for it disappear more, then cook it up with the turkey, bacon, & onion.
