Spaghetti with Tomato-Spinach Meat Sauce

Picture 1

Thursday night I was planning on making spaghetti with meat balls in a spinach tomato sauce but when I opened up my ground turkey, I realized it had gone bad. The expiration date wasn’t until this weekend, but I think it had sat in my fridge too long. So gross. But fortunately, I had some frozen ground turkey on store. After taking the time to defrost it, I didn’t have enough time to make meat balls so I decided to just make a meat sauce. Next time you make spaghetti, you should try this recipe! It’s quick and easy!



  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 cup chopped spinach
  • 28 oz can crushed tomatoes (I just used a cup and half of prego sauce instead… I cheated a bit.)
  • 1/2 tablespoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • Pinch red pepper flakes
  • Spaghetti
  • Parmesan cheese


Brown the turkey and onions. Once turkey is browned, start your spaghetti. Add the remaining ingredients to the meat and onions mixture. Simmer on medium, stirring occasionally, until spaghetti is finished cooking. Serve sauce over the spaghetti, topped with shredded parmesan cheese
