Method Prep:15min › Cook:45min › Ready in:1hr
Preheat an oven to 150 C / Gas 2.
Stir the ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, garlic, salt and pepper in a bowl; set aside on counter to allow to come to room temperature.
Bring a pot of water to the boil; cook the penne in the boiling water until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large mixing bowl.
While the pasta cooks, place a frying pan over medium heat. Cook the turkey until it is completely browned. Add to the pasta.
Spread 2 tablespoons of the pasta sauce into the bottom of a rectangular baking dish; stir the rest of the pasta sauce into the pasta and turkey mixture. Spoon about half of the pasta mixture into the baking dish; top with the cheese mixture and spread into an even layer. Spread the remaining pasta mixture over the cheese layer. Cover with foil if desired.
Bake until slightly brown on top, about 30 minutes.
