Turkey Spaghetti

Jon is running in Dances With Dirt tomorrow so I am making Turkey Spaghetti for dinner tonight. We are both trying to eat healthy and watch our waistlines, so subbing Turkey for Ground Beef is a change we are making often.

1.5 lbs. Ground White Meat Turkey
1 jar of good marinara sauce
1 can of italian diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon dried parsley
Dash of dried oregano
Dash dried basil
2 tablespoons chopped garlic (oh yeah!)
1/2 tsp. white sugar
Tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 small yellow onion, diced

Brown/cook turkey with s&p, add the rest of the ingredients, stir and let simmer for 30 minutes or so.

Serve with spaghetti and garlic bread.

I always try to serve a small salad with dinner if it doesn't have a good amount of veggies in it.

Chopped romaine
Diced Tomato
Handful of craisins
a little crumbled bleu cheese (optional)
and White Balsamic Vinegar and Olive Oil
