Ingredients

1 box of pasta

1 Tbsp olive or avocado oil

1 lb ground turkey, or any other ground meat

2 bell peppers, small diced

1 onion, small diced

1 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp chili powder

Sauce

15 oz tomato sauce

½ cup dairy-free milk

1 lime juiced

½ cup nutritional yeast

1 tsp garlic powder

2 tsp cumin

2 tsp chili powder

1 tsp paprika

½ tsp red pepper flake

Salt, to taste

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients for the sauce and set aside.
  2. Heat the oil (1 Tbsp) over medium-high heat in a large non-stick skillet. Add the turkey and cook until almost browned on all sides, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the bell peppers (2), onion (1), salt (1 tsp), pepper (1 tsp), garlic powder (1 tsp), cumin (1 tsp), chili powder (1 tsp), and sauce mixture and cook for another 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, cook the pasta per box instructions. Drain pasta and rinse with cold water to avoid the noodles sticking together. Add the pasta to the turkey mixture and stir until pasta is coated in sauce.
