Ground Turkey in Pasta Sauce

Cooking can be made easy when you find ingredients that help to make your desired meal, exactly what you would like it to be.

Spices are always great, adding just the necessary amount of flavor that can make any meal delicious but the ingredient I am speaking of, Land O' Lakes European Style Super Premium Butter

I have heard it said before that butter is fattening which can be true. But, adding a little fat to your diet is actually healthy. Women's Health Magazine recommends adding 7% of butter to our daily caloric intake.  See it here:  (  I prefer using butter than oil and definitely prefer it over margarine. It has  a great taste and not only keeps the food in preparation stage from burning, but also adds nice flavor to it. And what a great choice this new butter option that Land o'Lakes now has available is, with its nice sweet taste; adding just the right touch of love to our daily nourishment.  

I usually add about 1/2 tbsp. of butter to food while it is cooking, which is about two cubes of butter either for flavoring purposes or for keeping the food items from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Such was definitely the case for my Ground Turkey in Pasta Sauce and Spaghetti.

Meat sauce

Make sure ground turkey is defrosted and place into medium sized pan over a medium fire. Add your spices and use a wooden spatula to mix the meat. Mix every five minutes or so making sure that the meat on the top flips position with the meat on the bottom of the pan until all meat is brown.  Add diced tomatoes, pasta sauce and cheese and stir. Add two cubes of butter and stir. Leave on fire for another ten minutes, stirring often.



Bring three cups of water mixed with salt and garlic to a boil and add dry spaghetti shells to water. Stir shells in water until soft, and drain of all water.  Place soft shells back into pot and add two cubes of butter. Let shells with butter sit over a low fire until butter has melted. Serve spaghetti with meat sauce while warm for best results.

Like my family, your family will be rushing for more of this very tasty meal.
