Five Ingredient Friday

I am linking up with Paige's Place for this fun blog carnival. Here was a great dish I made Tuesday night for the first time...very experimental...very good! Since I started using The Grocery Game, I have ended up with some random ingredients and ingredients I have never used before. In an effort to make a meal from what I had around the house, this is what I came up with. It doesn't have a name, other than GOOD.

1 box of bow tie pasta
1 pkg Jennie-O lean ground turkey - hot Italian
6 fresh tomatoes
1/4 cup fresh basil (from our garden), chopped
1 cup bread crumbs/croutons (I used crushed garlic bread crisps from the quick-sale section of the bakery)

Prepare pasta as directed and brown ground turkey. While that cooks, slice tomatoes 1/4" thick.

Drizzle olive oil to coat the bottom of a large baking dish. Add pasta and ground turkey to dish. Layer sliced tomatoes, basil, and croutons in that order over pasta/meat. Drizzle with more olive oil, no need to measure or be exact.

Bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes.

Yummy and healthy too!

Thanks for joining my blog carnival!!!! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.

This sounds delicious and much healthier than a pasta/lasagna dripping with cheeses and sauce. I just bought some tomatoes today, so I will give this a try this week.

This sounds delicious! And a great way to use a bunch of garden tomatoes at once!
