Prep Time: 15 Minutes

Time to Table: 25 Minutes

Serves: 4


  • 1/2 cup orzo pasta
  • 1 cup Daisy Cottage Cheese
  • 4 ounce can mushroom stems and pieces, drained, chopped, and patted dry
  • 1/2 pound 99% lean ground turkey
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup dry Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup lower sodium pasta sauce


Cook and drain the orzo as directed on the package but do not rinse. Meanwhile, place the cottage cheese in a fine mesh strainer. Shake the cottage cheese gently to drain; let stand 5 minutes; shake again to drain. In a medium bowl, combine the cooked orzo, drained cottage cheese, mushrooms, turkey and Italian seasoning until combined. Shape by 1/3-cupfuls into eight patties about 1/2-inch thick. Place the bread crumbs in a shallow pan; coat each patty in the bread crumbs. Heat half of the oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook half of the patties 8 to 9 minutes, turning halfway through cooking, until a meat thermometer reaches 160 degrees. Remove the patties to a platter to keep warm. Repeat with remaining the oil and patties. To serve, place 2 patties on plate; spoon 1/4 cup marinara sauce over each serving.
