Units Scale
  • 1 pound thin spaghetti I recommend whole wheat pasta
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion diced
  • 20 ounces ground turkey
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic minced or crushed (or substitute 1/2 tsp. garlic powder)
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 10 ounces frozen chopped spinach thawed and squeezed dry
  • 4 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 28 ounces tomato pasta sauce I used Four Cheese flavor
  • grated parmesan optional


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Break spaghetti noodles in half and cook according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a dutch oven or 12″ skillet over medium-hight heat. Add onion, ground turkey, salt, basil, oregano, and a few grinds of black pepper. Stir and saute, crumbling turkey as it cooks, until turkey is almost cooked through.
  3. Stir in garlic, mushrooms, and spinach, and saute for about 5 minutes. Stir in cream cheese to evenly coat meat, and then add pasta sauce. Bring to a simmer.
  4. Gently stir in cooked pasta to sauce mixture, and cook a few more minutes to evenly heat pasta. Serve topped with grated parmesan if desired.
