2 tsp Canola oil
225 gm Cavatappi pasta
1 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, reduced fat (18%)
1 tbsp Chili powder
1 package (227g) Cremini (Italian) mushroom (sliced)
2 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
250 gm Ground turkey, lean (or beef)
1 1/4 cup, shredded Mozzarella cheese, partially skimmed
1 tsp Oregano, dried
1 jar (680ml) Passata
1/2 can(s) (15 oz) Red kidney beans, canned, drained (drained, rinsed)
1/4 tsp Salt
2 tbsp Tomato paste, canned
1 medium pepper(s) Yellow bell pepper (finely chopped)
1 medium Yellow onion (finely chopped)


Cook pasta according to package directions (omitting salt) until tender, 8 to 10 min. Drain and set aside.

Heat an extra-large frying pan over medium. Add oil, then garlic, onion, pepper and mushrooms. Cook until onion and mushrooms start to soften, 3 to 4 min.

Crumble in meat. Stir in tomato paste, chili powder, dried oregano and salt. Cook, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, 3 to 5 min.

Add passata, cooked pasta and beans. Gently boil until heated through. Sprinkle cheese overtop. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, covered, until cheese melts, about 2 min.

Serve immediately or freeze for later!
