Skillet Pasta Dinner

This is a quick and hearty one-pot meal that the whole family will enjoy!

 1 lb ground turkey, beef, or Italian sausage
 1 medium onion, finely chopped
 2 cloves garlic, minced
 8 oz tomato sauce
 1 cup water
 8 oz uncooked pasta (ziti, penne, macaroni)
 2 cups fresh or frozen veggies of choice (zucchini, carrots, spinach, mushrooms, or peppers are all good choices)

Brown the ground meat, onion, and garlic in a skillet or heavy saucepan. Drain off any grease.


Add the tomato sauce, water, and uncooked pasta. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.


Add the fresh or frozen vegetables, stir and continue cooking until the pasta and vegetables are tender (about 10 more minutes).


Serve with a sprinkle of cheese and fresh herbs, like basil, if you have them.
