Turkey Pasta Skillet

Still using up the leftover holiday turkey and ham around here.  We love pasta so this was a great way to use up some of that leftover turkey.

3 cups pasta

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 small pepper, thinly sliced

1/2 cup onion, sliced

1/2 teaspoon oregano

1/2 teaspoon basil

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 – 2 (14.5 oz each) cans diced tomatoes with juice

1 cup chopped turkey or chicken

1  Cook pasta according to package directions.  Drain after cooking, reserving some of the pasta water.

2  While pasta is cooking, add oil, pepper, onion, oregano, basil and salt to a large skillet over medium heat and cook for about 10 minutes or until pepper and onion are tender.  Add tomatoes and cook for 3 minutes then add turkey and cook until heated through.  Add pasta and any additional pasta water as needed and cook for 1 – 2 minutes until heated through.  Serve with Parmesan cheese.
