NOTE: You will need a very large pan for this. Mine was a 10 cup, cast iron pan and it was just barely large enough.

  1. Brown the turkey in your pan, using the olive oil.

  2. Once the meat has lost all of it's pink color, add all the spices to the pan and stir well to combine.

  3. Pour in the water (start with 3 cups, you can always add more as needed) and tomato sauce and stir gently while bringing the sauce to a gentle boil.

  4. Add the pasta, stir and cover the pan with a lid.

  5. Check on the pasta often so as to keep it from burning on the bottom of the pan. Cook until the pasta reaches your desired level of "doneness" (Is that a word?). About 20-30 minutes. Remember to stir!

  6. Allow to cool a bit and top with parmesan when serving.
