I love that it has a turkey as a protein source, and broccoli to keep things balanced. 

 

Balance tip: add additional broccoli, aim for ~1 cup per serving

 

Cooking the broccoli in the pasta water is a great trick for adding veggies to your pasta dinner to keep things balanced. Be sure to add this one to your meal plan this week!
