I've always been a fan of spaghetti it comes three of my favorite foods- pasta, ground turkey and tomatoes. When I found out about the kids' gluten allergy, I thought for sure I would have to give up my favorite Italian dish. Thankfully, food has come a long way and brands like Hunt's (and Kraft) understand that the struggle is real for those of us on gluten-free diets. After some experimenting I'm proud to share my 5-Ingredient Gluten-Free Cheesy Spaghetti recipe as part of the Publix Flavor Excursion campaign.
Before we hop into this recipe, I would like to disclose that I always season my ground turkey with my own special blend of Italian seasonings anywhere from 3 to 24 hours prior to making this dish. Of course, you're free to skip this step and tweak this recipe anyway that you see fit. Also, if you're allergic to dairy or lactose intolerant you can totally use your favorite non-dairy cheese as a substitute. Now that we have that out of the way let's get to the recipe!
1 28oz can of Hunt's crushed tomatoes with basil
1 pound ground turkey
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
1 cup Kraft natural shredded Mexican style four cheese (or substitute)
1 12oz box of gluten-free spaghetti noodles
In a medium skillet brown ground turkey until done. Drain fat/juices. Then mix in Hunt's crushed tomatoes with basil and let simmer on low heat to create a meat sauce.
While the ground turkey is simmering cook gluten-free spaghetti pasta according to package directions. Drain water and plate noodles once done.
Top spaghetti pasta with meat sauce. Next sprinkle on a fine layer of Kraft natural shredded Mexican style four cheese blend. Follow that with a few pinches of chopped parsley. Top with another light layer of cheese and serve!
