Updated October 28, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1
    can (14 oz) fat-free chicken broth
  • 1
    can (28 oz) whole tomatoes, undrained, cut up
  • 1 1/2
    cups chunky-style salsa
  • 1/2
    cup water
  • 2
    to 3 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 3/4
    cups frozen southwestern-style corn, black beans, red bell peppers and onions (from 19-oz bag)
  • 1
    cup uncooked cavatappi pasta (3 oz)
  • 2
    cups cut-up cooked turkey or chicken
  • 1/4
    cup chopped fresh parsley

Steps

  • 1
    In 4-quart Dutch oven, heat broth, tomatoes, salsa, water and chili powder to boiling, breaking up tomatoes. Stir in vegetables and pasta. Heat to boiling.
  • 2
    Reduce heat; simmer uncovered about 12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta and vegetables are tender. Stir in turkey and parsley; cook until hot.

  • Skinless turkey breast is a great choice because it's just about the leanest of all meats--just be sure it's ground breast and not regular ground turkey. For extra-flavor, garnish each serving with a dollop of reduced-fat or fat-free sour cream.
