Prepare the turkey by rolling small pieces into balls the size of jelly beans and then add the turkey balls to the pot. Let the soup cook until it is boiling and the turkey is well cooked.

Kids love this Healthy Recipes because of all the textures and tastes. Broccoli is nubby, the pasta is firm, the sauce is smooth, and the chicken is chewy. It is a winning combination.

12 oz. package of Smart Taste elbow pasta (or another kind of high fiber pasta) cooked
1 tbs. Italian seasoning
1 clove of garlic
Salt Butter flavored cooking spray
2 cans chopped chicken breast (You can also leave out the canned chicken and serve the pasta with a whole chicken breast or fish.)
