Ingredients

  • Salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large leek, white and light green parts only, sliced and well-rinsed 
  • 2 stalks celery, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • Pepper
  • 1 pound lean (93-percent) ground turkey
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cans (14.5 ounces each) no-salt-added diced tomatoes
  • 1 pound carrots
  • 8 ounces whole wheat linguine
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Grated Parmesan cheese for serving, optional (see Tips and Techniques, below)

Heat 5-quart saucepot of water to boiling on high. Add 2 teaspoons salt.

In 12-inch skillet, heat oil on medium-high. Add leek, celery, garlic, and 1/8 teaspoon each salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cook 5 minutes or until just tender, stirring occasionally.

Add turkey; cook 4 minutes or until meat loses its pink color, stirring and breaking into small pieces. Stir in cinnamon; cook 2 minutes. Stir in tomatoes. Heat to boiling, then reduce heat to simmer 15 minutes, stirring.

Meanwhile, with vegetable peeler, shave carrots into thin ribbons.

Add pasta to boiling water. Cook 1 minutes less than label directs. Add carrots; cook along with pasta 1 minute. Drain and return to pot. Add turkey ragu, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Stir gently until well mixed. Top with parsley.

Cook's Note

Tips and Techniques: Tip: Carrots add crunch to this simmer-while-the-pasta-cooks sauce. A Y-style peeler makes short work of shaving ribbons from even the fattest carrots. Tip: One tablespoon of grated Parmesan cheese only adds 20 calories to each serving.
