Italian Pasta Skillet

This recipe was so quick to put together and it turned into a nice, hearty meal. I have to admit I was a bit skeptical at first of the uncooked spaghetti and how exactly it was going to get cooked, but it all turned out well in the end!



1 lb. ground turkey breast
1 jar  (28 oz.) spaghetti sauce
2 cups water
8 oz.  spaghetti, uncooked, broken in half
1 cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1/2 cup  Grated Parmesan Cheese

1. BROWN turkey in large skillet; drain.

2. STIR in sauce and water; mix well. Bring to boil. Stir in spaghetti. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover. Simmer 15 minutes or until spaghetti is tender.

3. SPRINKLE with cheeses; cover. Cook 2 minutes or until mozzarella cheese is melted.

Serves 4.
