Turkey Rigatoni with Olives and Tomato Sauce

This recipe serves: 
4 ounces rigatoni (about 1/4 of a 1-pound box)
2 teaspoons olive oil
3 tablespoons diced onions
1 clove garlic, crushed
5 ounces lean ground turkey
1 cup no salt added tomato sauce
1/3 cup halved and pitted black olives
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
3 tablespoons grated, fat-free mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Cooking Instructions
1. Preheat the oven to 350F.

2. Bring 1/2 gallon of salted water to boil. Add the rigatoni and cook until al dente, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water.

3. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until soft and translucent, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds more. Add the ground turkey, and brown. Drain off the excess fat.

4. Add the tomato sauce and olives, and simmer for 5 minutes. Adjust the seasoning.

5. In a casserole dish, toss the rigatoni, meat sauce and basil together. Sprinkle with the cheeses. (This can be made ahead and stored unbaked in the refrigerator up to 2 days, or it can be frozen.)

6. Bake until the cheese is bubbly and brown and the dish is thoroughly heated, about 15 to 20 minutes; bake longer if the dish has been refrigerated.

Serving Size: about 1 1/2 cups
