Nacho Pasta

Looking for an easy lunch or dinner that’s fun, fast, and family-friendly? Try this one-pot pasta that’s cooked mostly on the stovetop and then briefly broiled at the end. We use broken lasagna noodles to replicate the shape of chips, cook them in cumin-spiked tomato sauce, and top them with salsa-seasoned turkey, black beans, Colby Jack cheese, scallions, and tomatoes. 


Uncooked 99% fat-free ground turkey breast

1 pound

Fat free salsa

½ cup


1¼ cup

Canned tomato sauce

1 cup

Ground cumin

1 tsp


1. Heat pan over medium heat. Add turkey to pan; cook until done, about 5 minutes, stirring to crumble. Stir in salsa; cook until liquid evaporates, about 1 minute. Remove turkey mixture from pan.

2. Add water, tomato sauce, cumin, and salt to pan; bring to a boil. Stir in noodles; cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook, stirring frequently, until noodles are tender and liquid is absorbed, about 12 minutes. Top noodle mixture with turkey mixture and black beans; cover and cook until heated through, about 2 minutes.

3. Preheat broiler to high. Uncover pan. Sprinkle evenly with cheese and top with tomato and scallions. Broil until cheese melts, about 2 minutes.
