The original recipe came from Gimme Some Oven. I’ve made a few changes to make this gluten-free, proportioned for two, and slightly healthier by replacing the pork bacon with turkey bacon. It’s a wonderful, quick dish and takes only about thirty minutes to whip this up.
Personally, I like to get all of my prep work out of the way first because it makes the cooking part of the process go smoothly.
The original recipe for this southwestern turkey salad came from a cookbook called Today’s Turkey Favorites which we sent away for in 1990. This book was only thirty-five pages long, but it contained a number of good recipes. “Today” is always a relative term because the original recipe is now nearly thirty years old. However, with a few little additions, this recipe is better than ever!
Use this spaghetti and meatballs recipe over your favorite pasta. We use a gluten-free pasta, but whatever you prefer will come out well. Prepare the pasta according to the package directions, unless you are extremely adventurous (or skilled) and are making your own! The longer the sauce simmers, the better it gets.
Want to try “spaghetti” without the pasta? Cook up a spaghetti squash and use that in place of the pasta.
