"24 Days to Christmas" Countdown - Spicy Turkey Pasta
This year I thought it would be nice to do a Christmas countdown, showing off things I have made as gifts and ornaments either this year or in previous years. If you are wanting to make handmade gifts for your loved ones this year, then keep watching because I hope to put an awesome Christmas related tutorial or recipe up every day until Christmas Eve. Today is day 6!
Today I want to share a yummy pasta recipe. This is a great meal to make after Christmas to use up leftover turkey. It is quick, easy and delicious.
Spicy Turkey Pasta (serves 2)
olive oil, for frying
1 x small red onion, peeled and diced
1tbsp tomato puree
125g shredded leftover turkey
400g chopped tomatoes
1/2 tbsp paprika
big pinch of mixed herbs
salt and black pepper
150g dry pasta
Heat the olive oil in a frying pan then add the onion. Cook for 5 mins until starting to soften. Add the tomato puree and leave to cook for 30 seconds. Add the leftover turkey, the chopped tomatoes and the seasonings. Bring to the boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 mins. Meanwhile, cook the pasta as per the pack instructions. Drain the pasta and add to the pan with the turkey. Cook over a low heat for a few minutes so the pasta can absorb some of the juice.
I hope you all enjoyed this recipe. You can find more Christmas Countdown posts here.
