I N G R E D I E N T S //
 ½ green bell pepper, chopped
 1 cup onion, chopped
 1 tbsp minced garlic
 1 tbsp avocado oil (or any cooking oil you prefer)
 1 lb ground turkey, lean
 1 ½ tsp garlic salt
 1 tsp onion powder
 a dash of cayenne pepper for a little bite (optional)
 1 tsp dried parsley (optional, I added for a little color pop)
 1 can tomato paste
 1 ½ boxes of Banza Chickpea Gemelli pasta
 2 ½ cups chicken bone broth
 11.20 fl oz Nutpods Unsweetened Original Flavor creamer (this is one containers worth)
 1 cup cheddar cheese

1

In a 3-qt saute pan with a lid, heat your pan over medium heat. Once heated, toss in your bell pepper, onion, garlic and oil. Saute them until fragrant and soft - 4-5 minutes is all this usually takes. Next, add in the ground turkey and spices to the pan. Stir together to make sure the spices get distributed evenly and ensuring the turkey crumbles and cooks completely.

Once you've cooked the turkey all the way through, it's time to add in the liquids, pasta and tomato paste. Over medium heat, stir it all in together and bring to a boil, stirring frequently to make sure noodles don't stick to the bottom of your pan. Then you will reduce heat to a simmer, cover and let simmer for 12 minutes. During the 12 minutes, stir 2 - 3 times to prevent anything from sticking.

Once the sauce has thickened and the noodles are softened after 12 minutes, you can sprinkle in the cheese, give it one last stir and serve!
