Mango Pasta with Turkey Sausage and Cilantro

Some thing new if you’re looking.

Mango Pasta with Turkey Sausage and Cilantro

1 box Barilla Pasta Shells

1 lb Jennie-O turkey sausage

1 ripe mango, peeled and cut in small pieces

1 1/2 cup pasta sauce

1/4 cup half and half

2 handfuls (1/2 cup) chopped red onion

1/4 cup cilantro chopped.

salt and pepper

olive oil

Cook the turkey sausage, chopping it into small pieces.

Cook pasta shells, reserving 1/4 cup of the water from the pasta.

In a large frying pan, fry the onion with a little olive oil over high heat. After about 3 minutes add choped mango and fry for about 30 seconds stirring constantly. Add turkey, stir and remove.

Combine 1 1/4 cup pasta sauce, 1/4 cup pasta water and 1/4 cup half and half.

Place shells in large bowl, pour sauce over noodles, pour sausage and mango combination over sauce. Sprinkle with cilantro. Stir and serve.

(in our family my wife doesn’t like cilantro so we keep that off and use it as a condiment for the people who want it.)
