Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves OR
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil, crumbled
  • 1 pound ground skinless chicken breast OR
  • 1 pound ground skinless turkey breast

  1. Prepare the pasta using the package directions, omitting the salt. Drain well in a colander. Cover to keep warm.
  2. Lightly spray a large skillet with cooking spray. Cook the basil leaves over high heat for 1 minute, or until wilted. (If using dried basil, add with the chicken.) Cook the chicken for 5 minutes, or until browned, stirring occasionally to turn and break up the pieces.
  3. Stir in the water chestnuts and vegetables. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until heated through.
  4. Stir in the coconut milk and curry powder. Cook for 1 minute, or until just warmed. Remove from the heat. Add the pasta, stirring to combine.

Cooking Tip: If you like spicy food, stir in a dash of cayenne or crushed red pepper flakes.

Keep it Healthy: Lite coconut milk has about 60% fewer calories and about 70% less saturated fat compared to regular coconut milk.

Tip: Use the canned lite coconut milk in the ethnic section of your grocery store rather than the refrigerated coconut milk found in the dairy aisle, which is a beverage. Be sure to shake the can before opening it because the coconut milk will have separated.
