Turkey Penne with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

I was a little skeptical when I made this but it was actually really good. The soy sauce puzzled me the most but it was actually very good and super easy to make.

Yield: 6     (serving size 1/6 recipe)

8 oz. penne pasta, freshly cooked to al dente stage, drained

1 1/2 cups turkey meat, cubed (duck or chicken works as well)

8 oz. reduced-fat cottage cheese

1 (15.5 oz. jar) marinara sauce

3 egg whites, lightly beaten

1/3 cup Parmesan cheese (add more if you like)

1/2 tsp. pepper

2 tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce

1/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes, cut into thin strips

1 cup finely chopped spinach

1/4 cup diced onion

1/8 tsp. garlic powder

2 tbsp. Italian seasoning

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 2-quart casserole dish with cooking spray.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, mix well to combine. Pour into casserole dish. Bake 25-30 minutes or until top is lightly browned and sauce is bubbly.
