Cooking Thursday

The recipe I'm sharing today is from Beth of A Mom's Life. She posted it recently and I tried it last week. As she promised, it was easy and good. I changed it a bit to make it healthier and we all loved it!
For more recipes, stop over at Diary of a SAHM.


One Pot Spaghetti


1/2 pound ground turkey
26 ounces Ragu light Tomato and Basil spaghetti sauce
spices to taste - salt, pepper, garlic powder, italian seasoning, minced onion...
1 can tomato paste
1 can chicken broth
2 cups water
14 ounce Barilla Plus thin spaghetti, broken into thirds

Brown turkey in large pot. Add spaghetti sauce and spices ( you can use whatever you have handy that sounds good). Stir in tomato paste, broth and water.
Bring to a boil, then add pasta.

Sprinkle Parmesan over top and enjoy!

Hi Mari Sweetie...
How gorgeous this looks. I could smell it before I got here. I love spaghetti. I even like it cold on a slice of bread. Yum..I can't wait to try your recipe, and thank you so much for sharing.

This is the Miracle Weekend makeover. I am one of the hosting sites. For every comment left, Guideposts magazine will pay a dollar, to the next cancer makeover patient. Please stop by and read the story about 9 year old Charlie, and bless me with a comment. Out goal between the 4 or 5 blogs is 5,000. I know we can do it. I would appreciate it, if you pass the word around to as many friends as possible.

Thank you sweetie for a wonderful post. I love it. Have a glorious weekend. Country hugs from Phoenix, Sherry

Mari, I will be trying this one. It sounds so much easier than the way I do it. Of course if I get ambitious and make homemade spaghetti sauce, it takes all day. That happens about once every couple of years when I get a craving for it.

Thanks for sharing.
