Last Updated on

Quickly cooked and easy to eat, Turkey and Broccoli Orecchiette is the perfect weeknight meal for a busy family. Ground turkey is cooked with garlic and spices, then tossed with broccoli, orecchiette and parmesan to make a delectable dish.

You guysssssssssssssss.

We don’t eat pasta often in this house because we’re carb monsters who will eat an entire box without batting an eyelash. (No, seriously. It gets ugly really fast, but it’s also delightful and delicious.)

But when we make pasta these days?

I want it to be this Turkey and Broccoli Orecchiette.

Quickly cooked and easy to eat, Turkey and Broccoli Orecchiette is the perfect weeknight meal for a busy family. Ground turkey is cooked with garlic and spices, then tossed with broccoli, orecchiette and parmesan to make a delectable dish.

The turkey is seasoned well and slightly spicy.

The broccoli is slightly crisp but cooked through.

The pasta is al dente.

And then the lemon juice, parmesan and pasta water make a lovely little sauce to coat everything.

You finish your bowl of pasta with additional parmesan — because of course you want to finish it with extra cheese.

It’s kiiiiind of ridiculous in the best possible way, and I’m sharing my Turkey and Broccoli Orecchiette recipe over at My Cooking Spot today. Join me?

What kind of pasta do you crave?
