A few pantry staples—plus a head of broccoli and lean ground turkey—form this hearty and healthy dinner. Plus, a smart kitchen trick cuts down on dishes: Rather than cook the broccoli separately, you’ll throw it into the boiling water with the pasta during the final minute of cooking time, so the vegetable’s perfectly crisp-tender, and the pasta’s al dente. In less than 20 minutes, you’ll dish up the all-in-one meal and top it with freshly grated Parmesan. Serve it with extra crushed red pepper at the table, in case anybody wants to add a little extra heat.
