  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup chopped desired vegetables, such as tomatoes and/or cooked broccoli

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat 12 2 1/2-inch muffin cups with cooking spray. Coat each with some of the 2 tablespoons bread crumbs; set aside.

2. In a small skillet heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Add turkey and cook and stir until browned; set aside.

3. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and return to pan. Stir in turkey, white cheddar, and Parmesan. Spoon about 1/4 cup mixture into each prepared muffin cup, pressing each firmly with the back of a spoon. Top with vegetables and the remaining 2 teaspoons bread crumbs. Drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil.

4. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until heated through and starting to lightly brown. Cool in cups on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Use a knife to loosen "muffins" from sides of cups. Serve warm.
