"My family never tires of this versatile entree. We can have it once a week, and it’s different each time! I sometimes omit the turkey for a meatless meal, change up the veggies or use my own tomato sauce.” Mary Lou Moeller - Wooster, Ohio

Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 small green pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 6 ounces uncooked multigrain spaghetti, broken into 2-inch pieces
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • Grated Parmesan cheese, optional

Directions

  1. In a large skillet coated with cooking spray, cook the turkey, pepper, mushrooms and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink and vegetables are crisp-tender.
  2. Stir in the tomato sauce, spaghetti, water and garlic salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until spaghetti and vegetables are tender. Garnish with cheese if desired.
