Skillet Pasta with Turkey and Horseradish Sauce

Turkey, Horseradish Sauce

This is an easy pasta with a slightly hot sauce…. Perfect for cold winter nights.
I used raw turkey but if you have leftover, cooked turkey add it at the end, with the pasta, just to heat through.


  • 12oz (360gr) turkey, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 rib celery, chopped
  • 1 3/4 cups (15oz, 450gr) whole tomatoes, peeled, chopped, juices reserved
  • 3 tbs prepared horseradish sauce
  • 1 tbs Dijon-style mustard
  • 1/3 cup (3oz, 90gr) Greek or plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 1/4 cups dried pasta, curly macaroni, rigatoni


  • Cook the pasta according to package directions.
  • Drain pasta 1 minute before it would be done.
  • Heat oil in medium nonstick skillet.
  • Add onion, celery, garlic, and sauté about 5 minutes.
  • Add paprika and sauté briefly.
  • Add turkey and stir-fry until cooked through, about 5 minutes.
  • Add tomatoes, reserved juices, mustard, and oregano.
  • Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered until sauce starts to thicken.
  • Add pasta, stir well and cotinue to simmer until pasta is done and sauce thick.
  • Stir in horseradish and yogurt.
  • Remove from heat and serve.


My horseradish sauce is not very hot so I use 3 tbs. If yours is hot adjust accordingly.
