Monday's Meal

I've had this recipe for years. It makes a quick and delicious hardy casserole that everyone enjoys. It's one of my all time favorites and I hope you like it too.

Turkey Chop Suey

1 (16 ounce) package uncooked elbow macaroni (or pasta of your choice)
1 pound of ground turkey
1 onion, chopped
1 stalk of celery diced (about 1/2 cup)
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 jar of spaghetti sauce
1 jar of beef gravy
1 tsp of oil
salt and pepper to taste

* we love cheese so I will often times toss whatever shredded cheese I have around on top before baking.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Put salted water on to boil pasta. Boil pasta according to the package, being sure to not overcook.
Heat a skillet with the oil over medium heat, add the onion and celery and cook until they are just beginning to soften, add your ground turkey and brown it. Set it aside until your pasta is completed. Now mix meat mixture, spaghetti sauce, tomatoes, gravy , salt and pepper together, blending well. Add this to the your cooked pasta mixing well again. Place everything in to a casserole dish (9 X 13 or whatever size you have) and cook uncovered for approximately 30 mins or until bubbling on top.
