Fusilli with Turkey & Broccoli
Turkey is a low-fat source of protein and one serving provides half of our daily requirement of Folic acid. Also a source of vitamins B, B1 and B6, turkey contains nutrients that help keep blood cholesterol down and protects against birth defects, cancer and heart disease.
Broccoli enjoys a reputation of a 'miracle food', in fact it packs more nutritional punch than any other vegetable. With vitamin C, vitamin A, Folic acid, calcium and fibre, this cruciferous (aka cancer fighting) vegetable is a nutrition superstar!
Another benefit of this dish is that it provides a healthy and kid-friendly supper in only 20 minutes.
