Turkey Spaghetti Bake

We get home late on Monday’s now because both girls have activities after Amelia’s school finishes. So, I tend to make either meatless dinners or quick one-pan meals. Tonight, it was the later.

We had a ton of leftover spaghetti from the weekend, so I threw it in the pot with the turkey and veg, poured sauce in and called it a dinner. Guess what? Both girls DEVOURED it. Even though Amelia doesn’t like when her foods touch, this is one she absolutely loved. I even got a thumbs up.

Mom win!
