All those flavors and combinations make for a limitless buffet of options when it comes to tailoring a meal. But who says that you have to stick with traditional carved turkey? Or that turkey can only be eaten at Thanksgiving? Turkey, especially when ground, offers a great alternative to ground beef because it’s lower in fat and just as delicious! Not to mention it’s very budget friendly, which is always a win in my book! So, here are some great ground turkey recipes to get you started celebrating the holidays year round.

Process: In a large stock pot (like this one), cook the spaghetti according to instructions for al dente pasta. Drain the water and return to pot. Toss with a little EVOO to keep them from sticking.
