Makes: 4 servings
  • 2 C (500 ml) uncooked penne pasta
  • 4 C (1000 ml) hot water
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) oil
  • 1/2 lb (225 g) lean ground beef or ground turkey
  • 1 pkg Shepherd's Pie Seasoning (3pk)
  • 1 can (14.5 oz/398 ml) no salt diced tomatoes
  • 4 C (1000 ml) baby spinach
  • 2 C (500) frozen peas
  • Sea Salt (Grinder), to taste
  • Black Pepper (Grinder), to taste
  • Toppings (optional): chopped parsley, grated Parmesan


  • Place pasta in Multipurpose Steamer. Stir in 4 cups water. Cover; microwave on high until al dente, 12 min.
  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a large fry pan or wok over medium-high heat. Crumble in beef; cook, breaking up meat using the Ground Meat Separator, until meat is cooked through, 3–5 min.
  • Stir in seasoning and tomatoes; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, 5 min.
  • Once cooked, drain pasta, then add to pan. Stir in peas and spinach until warm, 1 min. Taste and season with salt and pepper, if desired.
  • To serve, spoon into bowls. Add toppings, if desired.



Recipe tip: Make it vegetarian by using soy ground round instead of ground beef.
