The Secret Recipe Club: Turkey Macaroni Skillet

This month's assignment was from Everyday Insanity. I was excited when I received Cindy's blog as my assignment. We have very similiar styles of cooking and I loved seeing all the posts about her grandkids!

I chose her Beefy Macaroni Skillet recipe. It's a quick, one pot meal which is great for any busy family. I swapped out the ground beef in the original recipe for ground turkey.

1/2 lb ground turkey
1 small onion, diced
1 small can diced tomatoes
1/2 cup water or tomato juice
1/2 tsp salt
fresh ground pepper
3/4 cup small elbow pasta
1 cup frozen corn

In a large skillet, brown the ground turkey and onion. Drain any grease from the turkey. Stir in the tomatoes, water/juice, salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer.

Add the pasta and return to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and cover and cook for 12-15 minutes until pasta is tender. Stir often to keep the pasta from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Add the corn and heat through. Top with shredded cheese if desired.
