I make this once a week, my kids and DH love it. Change up the shape of your pasta to keep it interesting !! I use ziti, wagon wheels, seashells, twisty's , spaghetti, flat linguine etc etc
KID FRIENDLY PASTA DISH
1 pound your favorite shape pasta 1 pound lean ground turkey 1 small green pepper chopped really small 1 small onion chopped really small 2 cloves garlic chopped small 1 jar your favorite pasta sauce 1 teaspoon dried basil
Cook pasta to box directions
While pasta is boiling, saute green pepper, onion and garlic in a bit of olive oil. Cook about 5 minutes then add the ground turkey and stir often to make ground turkey almost crumble.
Drain pasta, then place pasta back into the pasta pot . Add the turkey mixture to the pasta pot and add the sauce and seasonings. Stir well
Serve with some parmasan cheese if you like. Add a salad too. My kids love chopped romaine lettuce, croutons and ceasar dressing for a kid friendly ceasar salad. ( no anchovies no slices of romano cheese )
Have your kids help. They are old enough to wash lettuce and tear it into bite size pieces. I always found if my kids helped to cook, they would eat it !!
