Excerpted from “The School Year Survival Cookbook” by Laura Keogh and Ceri Marsh.

Serves 6


1 lb orecchiette
4 cups small broccoli florets
3 Tbsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
1 tsp fennel seeds or fresh thyme
1/2 tsp dried chili flakes (optional)
1 lb ground turkey
1 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese


1) Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook according to package directions, about 10 minutes. Set a timer for 2 minutes before the pasta will be done—that’s when you’re going to add the broccoli.

2) Meanwhile, warm the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic, onion, fennel seeds and chili flakes (if using) and cook, stirring now and then, for about 3 minutes. Add the turkey and cook, while breaking it up, for another 5 minutes, until the meat is browned and almost cooked through.

3) Add the broccoli to the cooking pasta and cook for 2 minutes. Drain the pasta and broccoli and then add them to the skillet. Toss everything together well. Add the stock and toss more. Taste and add salt and pepper. Serve in a big bowl with Parmesan on top.
