Turkey Pizzaiola

Pizzaiola is a nice, simple Italian sauce that goes really well with pasta, and can (obviously) be used as the main topping for a pizza (hence the name).

Method

Cut the turkey escalopes into bite-sized cubes, then brown in a glug of olive oil.

Finely chop the onion, peppers and garlic and add to the turkey pieces, cook until the onions are translucent.

Add the tin of tomatoes, oregano, chilli powder & sugar, and simmer until the turkey is cooked through.

Season to taste (I like lots of black pepper) and add the fresh basil to wilt immediately before serving.

Serve mixed in with some fresh egg pasta, and sprinkle with freshly grated parmesan.

Ingredients

Chilli Powder (optional) ½ Tsp
Dried Oregano ½ Tsp
Chopped Tomatoes 1 Tin (400g)
Green Bell Pepper ½
Red Bell Pepper ½
Cloves Of Garlic 2
Medium Onion 1
Turkey Escalopes 2
Sugar ½ Tsp
Salt & Freshly Ground Black Pepper To Taste
Freshly Torn Basil Leaves 1 Handful
Parmesan Grated

Hints 'n' Tips

This is a versatile recipe, you can substitute the turkey for lots of things - bacon works really well.
