Carolyn’s Fiesta Turkey Pasta

Ingredients:

  • 1 (16 ounce) package pasta (I used whole wheat rotini)
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups turkey stock
  • 1 1/2 cups salsa
  • 1 cup water
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup shredded Mozzerella
  • 1/2 – 1 pound cooked turkey breast, cubed (however much you have to use up!)

Preparation:

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain. In a large pot or deep skillet, melt the butter over medium heat; blend in flour. Slowly add turkey stock, salsa, and water. Mix well. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir until thickened. Sprinkle in the Mozzerella cheese and turkey. Stir until the cheese is melted and the meat is heated through. Either spoon over cooked pasta or mix together with cook pasta.
