I almost didn't post this because I thought it was too easy or too obvious, but I decided to share it anyway because it was really good! I call it my whole wheat pasta bake with ground turkey!
What you need:
Half a package of ground turkey (I didn't think to look at how many pounds it was, but you can use as much meat as you prefer)
Half a box of whole wheat rotini (see how good I am at measuring...)
~1 Jar of pasta sauce
2% Mozzarella shredded cheese or cheese of your choice
Salt, pepper, and italian seasoning
*Adding an onion would have been a good idea but we didn't have any
**I thought about adding spinach, but it's really not my favorite so I skipped it, but it would also go really well if you want to add in some veggies!
I started by browning the meat and then adding the sauce and letting it simmer while I boiled the pasta. Next I mixed everything together in an 8x6 pan and topped with cheese and baked for about 10-15 minutes and voila!
You could just as easily make a regular pasta and top it off with cheese, but something about a baked dish in the winter is so much more satisfying! Also, my husband normally refuses to eat whole wheat pasta, but he gave in and enjoyed this dish!
And a confession, I think it was actually better the next day!
