The Ultimate Comfort Food - Wamsutta
Granny's Original Recipe
favorite pasta - penne
egg noodle, rotini
medium yellow onion
8 oz water chestnuts, drained
14.5 oz sliced mushrooms, drained
28 oz diced tomatoes
Salt and Pepper
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
by adding more meat - canned corn, olives and other veggies can add more dimension and flavor to this simple and delicious dish.
