Delicious and Easy Turkey and Veggie Spaghetti

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Maias2Papayas

This is a different spin on traditional spaghetti. It was inspired by the recipe of a Greek friend of mine who always put cinnamon in her spaghetti sauce.

I left out the onions and the zucchini but added a red pepper. At first I didn't know about the cinnamon but decided to add it anyway. I am so glad that I did and will be adding it in spaghetti from now on. It looks beautiful and smells great. It tastes even better. Thank you for posting.
