Turkey Turkey Turkey

When I had my last daughter, Ayla, I found it hard to lose my baby weight. I consulted a nutritionist who gave me a fantastic diet plan. My issue was too many carbs and not enough protein. He introduced me to turkey! 
Before then, I didn't realise how good turkey was. I just associated it with Christmas dinner. My nutritionist gave me lots of recipes but a lot of them were 'messy' and time consuming. I started to develop my own recipes, here's a quick and easy one with my cupboard/freezer staples....

Turkey and Med Veg Pasta

1. Add a portion (100g) of fresh turkey to a frying pan with a teaspoon of oil and cook until white. Add a portion (100g) of Mediterranean Vegetables to a frying pan with a teaspoon of oil and simmer. (I always have a packet of frozen Mediterranean veg in my freezer as I use them with a lot of meals just because they give a plain meal so much taste!)
2. While these simmer cook a small portion of Wholemeal pasta (50g) using the guidelines given on the packet. 
3. When the pasta is cooked, drain and add to the turkey and veg mix for one minute. Toss with turkey and veg to get all flavours together. 

Serve in a bowl and add grated Parmesan for extra flavour.
