Number of Servings: 9


    1.2 pounds Honeysuckle White Extra Lean Ground White Turkey (one package)
    1 can Extra Hot Rotel
    1 lg. zuccini chopped well (I use the food processor)
    2 cans Great Value Tomato Sauce
    one box DeCecco Whole Wheat Linguine (1lb)
    1 can sliced mushroom (liquid included)7oz
    1 large onion chopped
    1 tsp cayenne pepper
    1 tsp chili powder
    1 TBS Dried Minced Garlic
    2 tsp black pepper
    1/3 cup Tone's Spicy Spaghetti Seasoning


In a skillet brown turkey over medium heat. It helps to add a little water. This keeps the meat from sticking but does not add extra fat.(drain when done)

Once meat is browned add onion and zucchini and cook until transparent.

Add Cayenne, chili powder, garlic, Tone's and black pepper. Stir to mix in well with meat.

Add mushrooms, Rotel and Tomato Sauce. Simmer over low heat 30 minutes. Cook Linguine accourding to package directions.

If desired, mix linguine in with meat sauce before serving. (We like to serve the pasta and then spoon sauce over it.)

This will be spicy, but you can take out the heat spices and use regular or mild rotel to tone it down. You can lower the sodium by using low sodium sauce or fresh homemade tomato sauce. You can use another type of pasta if desired, I use Linguine, penne or Fettuccini because for some reason my husband will not eat spaghetti noodles.

Serves 9 -- each serving is one cup of sauce and one cup of noodles.

Number of Servings: 9
