  • Medium sauce pan
  • Medium pot


  • 1 box Banza Chickpea Pasta (your choice of noodle)
  • 1 package Lean ground turkey
  • 1 jar Rao's Tomato Basil Sauce OR Marinara Sauce
  • 2 cups Chopped mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • Start boiling your water in your medium sized pot for your pasta!
  • Toss chopped mushrooms into your medium saucepan on medium heat (no need for oils if you're using a nonstick pan!). Cook until the mushrooms begin to soften.
  • Once the mushrooms have started to soften, add lean ground turkey into the medium sauce pan, bump heat up to high. Use a spatula to "break up" the meat as it sautees.
  • Add Banza pasta into your boiling water. Keep an eye on this pasta - it will have some foam appear approx 3 mins after being added to the hot water (skim off the top and dispose). This pasta is also prone to overcooking, so check frequently (every 2 mins or so).
  • When meat is fully cooked (no longer pink), add jar of Rao's sauce and stir. When sauce starts to bubble, the sauce is complete.
  • When pasta is fully cooked, strain, and add into your medium sauce pan with your sauce.
  • Serve it up & ENJOY.
