Turkey and Herb Pasta Bake

Turkey and Herb Pasta bake

Turkey and Herb Pasta Bake

This recipe is super good if you want pasta without all the calories and high in protein. I have been craving pasta lately, and was slightly disheartened coming to terms with not being able to eat it, only because I’m a health nut and want to reach personal goals. Those goals most certainly do not involve pasta:(

Sooo.. Slim Pasta, I don’t know if you’ve heard the slim pasta craze, and personally I’m not really a fan. The first time I made it, the bin ended up taking most of it! So I decided to make a bake, full of turkey mice and flavour, to help hide the fact it really tastes like bland noodles. After making this and eating it, I’m well impressed it’s not too bad.

 Most of my recipes are in the healthy category, so don’t eat this thinking it actually tastes like pasta, its more like noodles. Give it a go and let me know what you think...It does tastes pretty :)If you cook anything with fresh herbs, its amazing how good things taste!

(Serves 4)

 1 packet of Slim pasta

500g of Turkey mince

1 large roma tomato 

50g leggos tomato paste. I used leggos pizza sauce because I didn’t have normal. Works the same, just extra herbs added

2 eggs

60g mozzarella

Fresh herbs. Use any you like. I used thyme, rosemary and oregano

3 cloves of garlic

Salt and pepper

1 tablespoon of olive oil


1.     Add olive oil to heated pan

2.     Add garlic and herbs. Sauté until fragrant

3.     Add diced tomato, sauté further. (Add small amounts of water to deglaze if the pan starts to burn or ingredients start to stick)

4.     Add tomato sauce and combine all ingredients

5.     Add 4 tbs of water to deglaze the pan and help paste mix through properly

6.     Add turkey mince and cook

7.     Boil kettle and pour hot water over pasta for a few minutes

8.     Drain pasta and add to baking dish

9.     Wisk 2 eggs and pour over top of pasta. Make sure egg mix covers pasta properly

10. Add mince over the top and spread out evenly

11. Add mozzarella on top of mince

12. Bake for 20 min in a pre heated oven on 170 degrees, or until egg is cooked.
