Cook the pasta in a large pan of lightly salted boiling water for 10–12 minutes, or according to the packet instructions, until al dente. Drain and transfer to a large bowl. Preheat the oven to 180°C (gas 4).
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large deep pan over a medium heat, add the onion and cook for 5 minutes or until softened. Add the turkey to the pan and cook for 4–5 minutes until lightly browned. Stir in the tomatoes with their juice and cook for 5 minutes or until the liquid has reduced by half.
Stir the tomato mixture into the pasta and season with salt and pepper.
Add the beans, broccoli and soured cream to the pasta mixture and stir everything together well.
Spread the mixture in a large, deep baking dish, measuring about 33 x 23cm. Sprinkle the Parmesan over the top.
Bake for 25–30 minutes until golden and slightly crispy on top. Serve hot.
*Canned tomatoes flavoured with herbs are a useful convenience product. However, if using regular canned chopped tomatoes, add 1/2 tsp dried thyme or mixed herbs to the mixture in step 2. *For a vegetarian variation, use Quorn mince and replace the Parmesan with an alternative cheese. *Serve with a mixed-leaf salad tossed with a fruity vinaigrette dressing.
