Step 1

In a large skillet or sauté pan, sauté garlic and onions in olive oil over medium low heat until softened.

Add ground turkey meat and cook, breaking meat up with a wooden spoon until browned.
Once turkey meat is cooked through, add pasta, chicken broth and enchilada sauce to pan.

Bring to a boil, then reduced heat to low and cover.

Cook on low, with pan covered for about 15 minutes.

Then remove lid and let simmer for additional 5 minutes until pasta is tender and sauce has reduced.

Remove from heat and stir in 1 cup of cheese.

Top pasta with additional cup of cheese and melt under broiler for a minute or tow, or place lid back on pan and let heat from the pasta melt the cheese.

Garnish with black olives and green onions.
