Recipe: Creamy Turkey Sauce

This is a random recipe I came up with one night when I needed something from nothing in my fridge.  I like extra lean ground turkey for low fat protein and I have a tendency to love creamier sauces.  Here is what I had...

My Ingredients:
-Extra lean ground turkey
-Light cream
-Onion
-Garlic
-Olive oil
-Parmesan
- NOT the mozzarella
-Reduced fat cream cheese (not pictured)


I diced the onion and garlic and sauteed them with the ground turkey on medium for about 12 minutes with a couple of teaspoons of olive oil.


Then I added about 1/2- 3/4 a cup of the light cream.  I let this simmer for a couple of minutes.


I decided it looked too thin of a consistency so I added in a couple of tablespoons of light cream cheese.  I let this simmer and blend for about five minutes, stirring frequently.  I also added in a three teaspoons of parmesan and a couple of pinches of salt.


This is the finished product!  I cooked some fiber pasta and added diced tomatoes and red pepper flakes.  For something thrown together, I thought it tasted delicious and ate more the next day with some quinoa.  Yum!
