Wash produce before use


Cook the fusilli

Bring a medium sauce pot of salted water to a boil. Add the fusilli and cook until just tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain and set aside.
While the water heats and the fusilli cooks, prepare the turkey Bolognese.


Prep the turkey Bolognese ingredients

  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
  • Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons.
  • Cut a small corner from the ground turkey packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.


Cook the turkey Bolognese

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the mirepoix, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in the tomato paste and cook until caramelized, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the turkey and cook, stirring to break up the meat, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes.
Add the zucchini and vegetable broth [1¾ cups broth] and cook, stirring occasionally, until the zucchini is just tender and the turkey is cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the fusilli and peas and cook until warmed through, 1 to 2 minutes.
Remove from the heat, season to taste with salt and pepper, and sprinkle with as many chile flakes as you like.


Transfer the fusilli and turkey Bolognese to individual bowls and serve.
