Grab your forks! We still want to start the new year on a healthy note, so here’s a delicious, one-pot, low-cal spaghetti recipe you can make with your Seniors Helping Seniors® caregiver to start the year off right!
1 lb. ground turkey, lean
1 yellow onion, diced
28 oz canned crushed tomatoes
1 cup freshly chopped spinach
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
½ teaspoon dried oregano
⅛ teaspoon red pepper flakes
4 cups low sodium chicken or beef
1 box of whole grain spaghetti
Fresh basil leaves for garnish (optional)
Fresh grated parmesan
In a large skillet, cook ground turkey and onion over medium heat, stirring often, until fully browned. Make sure to drain any excess fat from the pan.
Add spinach, salt, garlic, Italian seasoning, oregano, and red pepper flakes. Stir, and cook for 2 minutes.
Add your broth of choice and your crushed tomatoes. Bring this to a simmer over medium-high heat.
Cover and cook for 10-15 minutes until pasta is fully cooked, stirring often to reduce sticking.
Dish out and top pasta with Parmesan cheese and fresh basil leaves, if desired.
