We think turkey is a much under used and under rated meat. Not only is it economical but it’s so tasty and deserves to be cooked more than once a year.

This recipe uses the basic ratatouille vegetables but you could add any you’ve got in the fridge.

We found that par-cooking the pasta cuts down the overall cooking time. Just make sure you don’t overcook it before it goes into the oven – sludgy pasta isn’t nice!

If you don’t have turkey, this Turkey Ratatouille Pasta Bake would work just as well with chicken or even fish!

  1. I might be misreading the ingredients but it has 2 lots of HEa cheese in it so can’t be syn free as either the cheddar or mozzarella needs to be syned. Tell me where I’m going wrong please. Thank you.

    1. Hi Sonya
      The recipe makes 6 portions, and in total there are 6 x HexA amounts of cheese.

      140 grams Reduced Fat Mozzarella Torn into small chunks (2 x HexA or 14 syns)
      160 grams Reduced Fat Cheddar Grated (4 x HexA or 22.5 syns)

      Hope that makes sense!

  2. Hi not recipe related but I try and print where it says click to print here and it goes to a blank page happened on another recipe earlier can you let me no please as don’t think I’m doing anything wrong .

    1. Hi Deborah
      Please try viewing the recipe and printing through a different web browser. If you still encounter a problem, please email [email protected] and tell us which device and browser you’re using. Many thanks.

  3. Hi, does this recipe use chunks/squares of turkey, or turkey mince? I assume chunks as it says diced but thought I better check! Thanks

  4. Can’t wait to try this tonight having changed from a differant weight loss program I can’t thank you enough for boosting my start to slimming world with all you’re delicious recipes

  5. I would like to order the cook book but when I tried it would be delivered whilst I am out of the country. Not back until the middle of May. Is it best to order when I am back?

    1. Hi Lesley
      If you’re ordering through Amazon, you can select an alternative delivery address at the checkout. Maybe you could get it sent to a relative or friend? If not, it will be fine to wait until your return to the UK.
      Thanks so much for your support!

  6. Followed the recipe loosely. I swapped carrot for aubergine, chopped all of the veg chunky and roasted it with the dried herbs before adding it to the chopped tomatoes, passata, turkey and pasta. Turned out sooo good! Definitely will make it again! 😋😋😋

  7. My husband can’t stomach tomatoes but is ok with passatta (odd I know) do you think the tin of tomatoes could be substituted?
