Fast Italian Food

If you are like me, most nights, you are looking for an easy, quick dinner to make for your family, like this Gemelli with Vodka sauce. It's super easy and ready in about 15-20 minutes. The best part about this meal, it has five ingredients!

I've added lean ground turkey meat to boost this recipe's protein content. Add seasoning, like salt and pepper, to your turkey, and you've got a hearty dinner the entire family will love. Substitute firm crumbled tofu, lean ground beef, or chicken for the turkey.

Garofalo Organic durum wheat semolina pasta from Italy is excellent if you are not gluten-free. Otherwise, substitute your favorite GF pasta for the Garofalo. Locatelli imported pecorino romano cheese from Italy is our family's favorite chees to grate over the finished pasta dish. You can find both the pasta and the cheese at your local Costco.


1 package Gemelli pasta.

1 25-ounce jar prepared Vodka sauce

1 pound organic turkey chop meat

3 cloves of garlic pressed or finely chopped

Pecorino Romano cheese.


Cook the pasta according to the package directions. While the pasta cooks, place the ground turkey in a medium pan with the garlic and season with salt and pepper. Cook until brown, and drain. Top the pasta with the cooked and drained turkey, pour all the sauce over the turkey, mix all ingredients, and top with freshly grated cheese. Buono Appetito!
