Fall has me wanting all of my favorite comfort foods. Warm soup, pastas, and casseroles. A full meal and only one dish to wash when its over, we love this turkey spaghetti.
I don’t know if there is anyone out there, more passionate about one pan or one pot meals, than me. I am all about them. I love how simple they are, and how I only have to clean up one dish.
There is nothing worse than having a sink full of pots and pans after a long day. This makes cleanup tidy, simple and fast.
Not to mention how delicious this meal is. It’s like spaghetti has been more simplified and made more delicious. I didn’t know it was possible either, until I had this.
Your family is going to love it. Give it a try, and let us know how they like it (or love it).
Tips for making one pot turkey spaghetti
- The key to this recipe, is staying by it, while it cooks. It requires stirring quite often, and checking on ingredients to make sure they are fully cooked.
- I also prefer rinsing and draining my turkey when cooking it. It doesn’t talk about this in the recipe instructions, but I have a happier tummy when there is less grease in it.To do this, I simply run the meat under water, and use a spatula, or a drainer, to let the water and grease out. I repeat this step two or three times, just to be sure.I do this step, when the meat is fully cooked and there is no pink left.I then put the ground turkey back on the stove, so it can remain warm as I add the other ingredients to it.
- I am all about short cuts. This recipe is pretty quick to throw together, but the one shortcut I did find was purchasing pre-shredded mozzarella cheese. Then again, this is all I buy.I don’t even think I have a cheese grater anymore?
What would I need to change if I used Beef instead of turkey
This recipe is extremely versatile. You could easily switch out the turkey, for beef. If you do happen to switch these ingredients out for each other, you may want to consider using beef broth instead of chicken.
Other than that, the recipe will be the same. It will also be delicious, either way.
