An easy and nutritious meal! I used ground turkey, frozen spinach, and spaghetti sauce. Fabulous one dish supper.

Delicious! I used brown rice and arugula instead of spinach. It looked very appetizing and the tasted even better. To me, this is the ultimate weeknight meal. Thank you.

Very Yummy! I used half a pound of ground turkey, brown rice, and frozen spinach. I ended up having to double the broth because of the brown rice, and I didn't have any tomatoes, so I just threw in diced fresh mushrooms instead. Being diabetic, it was perfect for me. I know it says "for 2" but I'm gonna end up scarfing it all myself! Thanks for the yummy, healthy lunch, Bec!
