|Mom’s Favorite Recipe||Whole grain rotini noodles, cooked. Ground turkey cooked. Add spaghetti sauce and ground turkey to the noodles and mix. The texture of the rotini helps the turkey to stick to it. I also usually add a cube or two of pureed spinach, sweet potato, carrot, or squash for some added veggies. It mixes into the sauce well. I create the cubes earlier in the week by pureeing and freezing the veggie in ice cube trays.|
