Turkey Chili Mac

i recently discovered the goodness that is ground turkey. i'm reaaaaal weird about eating meat. (my family and close friends are currently nodding in agreement as they're reading this). i like chicken and turkey and salami, and that's about it. i'll eat a steak if it's put in front of me and i'll eat ground beef if it's slathered in marinara sauce or taco seasoning. and that's about it. ANYWHO. i found this recipe on pinterest and wanted to amend it a bit to fit my preferences.
ingredients:
- 1 lb. ground turkey
- box of pasta (any kind you like -- i did macaroni noodles)
- can of corn
- one red pepper, diced
- 12 oz. can of diced tomatoes
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- can of white beans
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 tablespoon ground cumin
- a bit of dry Ranch seasoning from packet (1-2 teaspoons)

directions:
- cook pasta according to box directions, drain and set aside
- brown ground turkey in iron skillet, drain and set aside
- heat oil in iron skillet (or one large enough to hold all ingredients)
- add garlic and peppers and saute for 5-7 minutes
- add turkey, tomatoes, broth, corn, beans, pasta and seasonings
- mix well and let simmer for a few minutes

this stuff is divine. it's boyfriend approved, too. enjoy!
