I had a small amount of rigatoni, a small amount of shells, some ground turkey and a jar of tomato basil sauce. (I usually steer clear of jarred tomato sauce but since we were on our last legs I wasn't going to fight the convenience.)
Being the foodie/meddler that I am, I couldn't just settle for the simplicity of the dish as it was.
I dug through the fridge and found it — the one ingredient that would take this dull Tuesday night dish to the next level: Boursin soft cheese spread.
I honestly don't know why this hadn't been thought of before. When I added the garlic and herb spread to the tomato and turkey mixture it gave the dish a rush of flavor in one simple scoop.
Enjoy! Just a dull ol' Tuesday night dish, dressed up a teensy-weensy bit.
