Spaghetti w/ Spicy Turkey — Holiday Guests #3
My love for cooking has always been there, but more a less on the back burner. A year ago I began a journey of “Cooking Everyday for a Year and Sharing my Recipes” (on facebook); when I completed the year I was so sad and wanted to continue. I didn’t know much about blogs, but began reading and following and just fell in love, thus began my MOMS CRAZY COOKING BLOG. I bake and cook and my family LOVES to taste. Then we all vote and decide if they are “keepers” or not.
Today I have a delicious Rachel Ray recipe for you. I tear out pages and pages of recipes from magazines and I try and make every single one, some are to-die for delicious and some are just so-so. This was one of those knock you of your seat every so yummy spaghetti recipes and I am so glad I finally got around to making it. I know that if you find the time to make this recipe you will not be disappointed. ENJOY!
from Rachel Ray Magazine
1 pound whole wheat spaghetti
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 pound ground turkey
Salt and black pepper
One 28-ounce can diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4 cup chopped parsley
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the pasta according to package directions until al dente; drain, reserving 1 cup pasta cooking water.
Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat; add the onion and cook until softened, about 8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute more. Increase the heat to medium-high, crumble in the turkey, season with salt and black pepper and cook until the turkey is just no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes and crushed red pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 15 minutes. Stir in the parsley and cheese.
Toss the pasta with the sauce and 1/2 cup reserved pasta cooking water, adding more water to thin the consistency, if desired. Serve immediately with more cheese.
