I’m pretty proud of my new One Pot Turkey and Pasta Recipe. It is delicious. Additionally, it’s kid and husband approved at my house already!

I don’t know about you, but I’m loving these one-pot dinners. What’s not to love? Using fewer pots and pans while cooking, or just simplifying dinner.

Weeknights are crazy busy. We have school, work, extracurriculars, and also there are bathing. There’s so much that goes into a day. Finding yummy better for you recipes, that are easy to make can be a challenge.

New Recipes In, Old Recipes Out…

I have a list of favorite recipes that I use in my house. Certainly, It was time to refresh our favorites, and try to add in more vegetables, and better for you ingredients. For that reason, I started brainstorming and researching.

I have a lot of recipes that use ground beef. Ground beef has been played out too many times at this point, and I wanted something different, and better for us. So I thought, what about turkey?

  1. I hate washing dishes…so one pot meals are great. I love the pasta and spinach with this. It’s a new twist for me. I usually do a large container of rice, then one pot meals that I serve over that rice through the week. I am going to try your recipe.

    1. I hate washing dishes too! My dishwasher has been broken for like three months! My one pot meals are keeping me sane right now!

      Rice is such a great staple! I like to add some quinoa to our rice, for extra nutrition!

      Thank you for stopping by Dawn! It’s always a pleasure to chat with you!
