One Pot Spaghetti

Sue here today!
I have been dying to share this easy peasy recipe for spaghetti but Jo just would not stop with the recipes. I decided to hijack the blog while I had a chance.
I found this over at Fantastical Sharing Of Recipes and thought it looked interesting.
Turns out, it is amazing! I've made it half a dozen times in the past month. I probably won't go back to making spaghetti the "old way" again.
I mean...everything in ONE pot!
Less dishes = happy Sue.
One Pot Spaghetti
(Slightly adapted from Fantastical Sharing Of Recipes)
1 lb turkey, ground
1 onion, finely diced
2 medium carrots, peeled & diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 (10 oz) can chicken broth
1 (26 oz.) can spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup water
8 oz spaghetti, broken into pieces
1/4 cup Parmesan, shredded
salt & pepper
shredded aged cheddar cheese (optional)
In a large pot, brown the turkey with onion and carrots, add garlic in last minute or so; drain if needed.
Add broth, spaghetti sauce, and water. Bring to a boil.
Add spaghetti and reduce heat.
Cook, covered, for 15 - 20 minutes, until spaghetti is cooked al dente. Stir occasionally and add more water, if needed. Stir in Parmesan.
Serve hot. Sprinkle with salt & pepper and shredded aged cheddar cheese, if desired (or more Parmesan). easy is that?
And, you only dirty ONE pot.
This is quickly becoming my go-to dinner when we are short on time. Served with some garlic toast and a salad, I can have a complete meal in under half an hour.
The world needs more dishes like this. Thank you to Fantastical Sharing Of Recipes for posting this one!
