This was one of those days when I could not decide what to make for dinner and hubby had browned a pound of ground turkey by the time I arrived at home with the kids.  

Turkey and Veggie Pasta & Pizza


A little poking around the kitchen provided two ideas, pizza and pasta.  There was an abundance of broccoli heads since both my husband and I bought some on the way home the day before.  He buys it because he likes it,and  I buy it because he likes it.  Some of the broccoli needs to work with the turkey, they will be great with some pasta.  

My son wanted to help make dinner, he loves pizza, so I thought he could help with parts of the meal.  I sliced up a zucchini and he dropped them in to a pan to brown.  He took out two flour tortillas and added the shredded cheese once I covered them with tomato paste.  We walked outside to the garden.  We picked some basil leaves for both the pasta and the pizza.   

The mini pizzas were loaded up with shredded mozzarella cheese, half of the ground turkey (browned), oregano, fresh basil, red onion, and the browned zucchini cut into a small dice.  I baked them at 400F just until the edges of the tortilla were crisp and the cheese had melted.   

Penne pasta was cooked and a head of broccoli was cut up and added for the last couple of minutes of the pasta’s cooking time.  Drain the whole pot then add the pasta and broccoli back in along with your choice of sauce and julienne the fresh basil.  Then add the remaining turkey, zucchini and parmesan cheese.  Warm through and serve 🙂
