If you read my post from yesterday, I’m an obsessed advocate for eating and cooking at home. I like to eat out too, but cooking at home is so cost effective! And delicious. And never let it be said with any sort of conviction that single gals don’t cook! Oh, yes we do! If we’re trying save our money and build a little side business, we adore preparing home cooked meals. In the words of Sophie Amoruso, “money looks better in the bank!” (ladies, I suggest you buy or rent a copy of Girl Boss. I got me a copy for less than $4!)
One of my favorite go-to meals is spaghetti. It should be a staple in every household if you ask me. I’m been a spaghetti lover since 3. It’s sad that I remember that, but I do. It’s simple and quick to make. Below is my take on spaghetti using whole grain Penne pasta and ground turkey. I’m no chef and I’m no photographer. Just a foodie. Someone who appreciate a good meal. If don’t believe, ask my hips
If you’re at all curious how I made my spaghetti:
- Boil your pasta how you normally would
- Because I used ground turkey, I added some milk to my skillet. Yes, milk. It makes white meat creamier. How much milk? Maybe a 1/4 cup.
- I love seasonings so I added: black pepper, pink salt, sage (goes good with white meat), fresh chopped red onion, garlic powder and dried oregano.
- Ground meat till brown.
- I used canned sauce. Sorry. I can make homemade sauce, but that requires a lot of tomatoes.
- I do add fresh tomatoes. Just one.
- Add the sauce to your meat. Your pasta should done about this time if you start cooking the noodles at the same as the meat (just makes sense)
- Once the sauce has been stirred in with you meat and matches it’s temperature, it’s time to plate eat!
*Homemade garlic bread? Use any bread you want. Seriously. Combine melted butter, garlic powder and parsley flakes into a spread which is going to go on your bread. Put bread into oven at 400 (or whatever) and give it about 10 minutes.
