When you become an adult eating out everyday after work just won’t work especially if you want to save money and attempt to eat healthy. Gone are the days when you relied on your swipes from the dining hall in college to get by! For those of you with a “big girl” job you can afford to budget for groceries and cook dinner that can be used as your lunch at work, too. My favorite meal as a little girl has always been spaghetti. My dad cooked the best spaghetti, but when I went away to college I didn’t eat much spaghetti unless I went to Olive Garden. I decided to boss up and master my favorite meal, so I went to the grocery store and purchased whole wheat spaghetti noodles, Prego Italian sauce, ground turkey and parmesan cheese.
It’s actually really simple to cook spaghetti, but I tend to make things harder than they need to be sometimes. Following these easy steps will have cooking life a gourmet Chef:
How to Cook Whole Wheat Spaghetti
Step 1- Cook your ground turkey in a large skillet, cook until the meat gets brown (There should be no pink showing).
Step 2- Once the ground turkey is nice and brown add your Prego Italian sauce and mix that into your ground turkey until the meat is completely covered in the sauce.
Step 3- Use a pot to boil water to put your whole wheat spaghetti noodles in. You can do this step while step 1 is going on. It should only take 7-9 minutes to get your noodles tender enough to your liking.
Step 4- Take a plate and use tongs to put your noodles on the plate. Add your meat to the top and then sprinkle your parmesan cheese. Bon Appétit!
