Lean and Green Palmini Spaghetti Recipe

Lean and Green Palmini Spaghetti Recipe


  1. Heat a large pot over medium heat and add the ground turkey. Cook until fully browned.
  2. Once the turkey is cooked, add the ingredients for the 8 oz. “sauce” (such as chopped tomatoes, tomato sauce, and/or veggies) and spices to the pot. Let simmer for at least 20 minutes, occasionally stirring, to allow the flavors to develop.
  3. While the sauce simmers, prepare the Palmini by soaking it in almond milk for 20 minutes or rinsing it under water for 5 minutes. This will help to neutralize the natural flavors.
  4. Bring a pot of water to a boil, then add the Palmini. Boil for 5-10 minutes, depending on your desired texture (al dente or softer).
  5. Once cooked, drain the Palmini and pat it dry to remove any excess water.
  6. Add the Palmini to the sauce and let simmer on low heat for an additional 10 minutes.
  7. Serve warm and top with grated parmesan cheese and fresh basil. Enjoy!
