Quick and Easy Spaghetti Dish for Adults
I like spaghetti, although sometimes, I’d like to have a more adult version of the popular Italian dish. While you’re making the kids’ spaghetti and turkey meatballs for dinner this week, try this Spaghetti & Turkey a la Puttanesca.
While the recipe calls for roast turkey as its primary protein, you can substitute it for ground turkey, or cut-up turkey breast. This meal takes very little effort and tastes delicious.
