Ingredients

1 pound (450g) ground turkey
1 cup chopped mushrooms
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 stalk celery, chopped
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon curry powder
2 cups chicken broth
2 cups milk
4 cups (1lb, 450g) cheese tortellini
1 1/2 cups frozen peas, thawed

Directions

  1. In a large non-stick skillet, over medium heat, cook the turkey, breaking it up and stirring it for 2-3 minutes or until most of it is browned. Add the mushrooms, garlic and celery and continue cooking for another 1-2 minutes until the turkey is completely browned (no pink remaining) and the vegetables have softened.
  2. Add the flour, salt, pepper, onion powder, thyme and curry powder and stir to combine. Slowly pour in the chicken broth and milk while stirring constantly. Bring the mixture to a boil and then add the tortellini.
  3. Reduce the heat to a simmer (medium low heat) and let it cook, stirring often, for 12-15 minutes, or until the tortellini is tender and the sauce has thickened. Stir in the peas and heat through.

Notes

You can also add in 1/2 teaspoon red chili flakes to this (same time as the rest of the seasonings) and it's fantastic. My kids don't like it being spicy though so we just sprinkle them on our individual servings. So if you like a little heat, add that in!
