If you're looking for a restaurant-quality meal that can be made quickly, with minimal prep time and almost no dishes then you have come to the right place! This is fall comfort food at it's finest (and easiest!). Usually when I think of ricotta cheese and pasta I think about ravioli or lasagna, but now my new favorite use for ricotta cheese is in this dish. It's just so simple and tasty!
I tried to keep the ingredient list super simple while still allowing an amazing flavor:
It is really very easy to make this pasta!
step one: heat oil in a large skillet and add the turkey
step two: cook until slightly browned, then add garlic, sage, italian seasoning and salt and cook until turkey is no longer pink
step three: add the broth and bring to a simmer
step four: add the penne noodles, stir and cover the pan, and allow to simmer for 10 minutes, or until pasta is al dente (follow package instructions)
step five: add the ricotta, pumpkin puree, parmesan, and heavy cream and stir until sauce is uniform
step six: sprinkle mozzarella on top and broil 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbly, serve warm
Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat, then add turkey and break up into small pieces and cook until almost cooked through
Add the garlic, sage, italian seasoning, and salt and continue cooking until turkey is no longer pink
Add broth and bring to a simmer, then add noodles, stir, and allow to simmer, covered, for 10 minutes
Once noodles are cooked, add the ricotta cheese, pumpkin, parmesan, and heavy cream and stir until uniform
Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese on top of the noodles, then broil for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly
