Turkey Sloppy Joe Pasta

This one-pot Turkey Sloppy Joe Pasta is simple to make, super satisfying and full of flavor!

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs raw 99% lean ground turkey breast
  • 2 tablespoons McCormick Montreal Steak Seasoning
  • 2 medium carrots, minced (I recommend using a food processor or food chopper)
  • 8 oz white mushrooms, minced (I recommend using a food processor or food chopper)
  • 2 medium yellow onions, minced (I recommend using a food processor or food chopper)
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 (15 oz) cans tomato sauce
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can petite diced tomatoes
  • ¼ cup tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 12 oz uncooked pasta shells, use whole wheat pasta if following the WW Purple plan

Instructions

  • Lightly mist a large dutch oven or soup pot with cooking spray and bring over medium heat. Place the ground turkey in the pot and cook, breaking up with a spoon or spatula. Add the Montreal Steak seasoning and stir in. Cook until the turkey is cooked through and in small pieces.
  • Add the carrots, mushrooms, onions, garlic, vinegar and Worcestershire sauce and stir together. Continue to cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally or until vegetables are softened. Add the water, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, brown sugar and cayenne pepper and stir together. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to low. Cover the pot and simmer for 15-20 minutes.
  • Add the pasta and stir until well combined. Re-cover the pot and simmer for 20-25 minutes until the pasta is cooked through. Remove from heat, stir and allow to sit for 15 minutes uncovered before serving.
