  • Granny's Original Recipe
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 1/4 lb Ground Turkey
  • 10 oz favorite pasta - penne egg noodle, rotini
  • 1 medium yellow onion diced
  • 2 bell peppers diced
  • 1 can 8 oz water chestnuts, drained
  • 1 can 14.5 oz sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 1 can 28 oz diced tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp Tabasco
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Shredded Cheese to cover


  • In a large stock pot, melt butter
  • Pre-heat oven to 350 °F
  • Add in onion and bell pepper and stir and cook until they slightly softened and beginning to sweat
  • Add in the ground turkey and cook, stirring occasionally.
  • While the turkey is cooking, cook the pasta
  • Drain the pasta and set aside
  • Once the turkey is cooked, drain and return to the pot: add in the pasta, mushrooms, tomatoes, Tabasco, and water chestnuts - stir until well mixed
  • Spoon the turkey mixture into a 9X13 baking dish and top with cheese
  • Bake 20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted, bubbling and golden-delicious.
  • Remove, allow to cool for a few minutes and serve.


This can be stretched by adding more veggies or pasta, or beefed up by adding more meat - canned corn, olives and other veggies can add more dimension and flavor to this simple and delicious dish.
