Turkey Goulash


Turkey Goulash for Dinner in 30 Minutes

It’s no secret that I love meals that I can make in minutes.  There’s always so much going on that sometimes I have to make super quick meals.  That’s not always easy.  Turkey Goulash fits the bill though.  Lean ground turkey, onions, garlic, and your favorite pasta sauce are always a great start to a recipe.  A little simmering, some pasta, and a sprinkling of parmesan, and you have a great bowl of Turkey Goulash to make your family happy and full.  It has become one of my family’s favorite meals, and one of my favorite to cook.

Raid the Pantry and Freezer for Turkey Goulash

I always have a few jars of pasta sauce and pasta in the pantry.  The type of pasta really doesn’t matter for Turkey Goulash.  I use whatever I have, from capellini to ziti.  Onions and garlic are always in my pantry, and when it comes to Italian dishes, they are kind of a no-brainer for me.  Ground turkey can be expensive, but I stock up when it goes on sale.  I found a 4 pound tray of it for less a pound than ground beef, so of course it came home with me.  It was easy to split it up into one pound packages, which were perfect for Turkey Goulash.  I used two of them for an extra meaty dinner, but you can use one if you like a lighter meal.

Leftovers and Freezer Space with Turkey Goulash

If you enjoy making large batches of meals, then having them ready for lunches or putting them in the freezer for meals later, Turkey Goulash is a great meal to use.  Sometimes I make up a double batch, freeze half of it, and then package the other half into lunch sized portions.  It makes getting ready in the morning super simple, and I know that if I need an even quicker meal fast, it’s right there in the freezer.  Turkey Goulash is a great all around dish that you can make in a flash and have for later too.
