Fresh Mushroom & Sharp Cheddar Turkey Sauce w/ Mini Penne

I love, love, love pasta or anything Italian! The only thing I love more, my husband of course. With that being said, pasta sauce is a great way to play around with new flavors. So, the following then would be my latest creation.

1 lb ground turkey
1 onion, peeled, halved, & sliced
3 tbsp olive oil
3 large white mushrooms, sliced
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp salt
2 tsp pepper
2 tsp dry Italian seasoning
2 tsp dry parsley
2 tsp dry basil
2 tsp dry oregano
1-      24 oz bottle of pasta sauce
8 oz of Spaghetti noodles, uncooked
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

1.       Fill a large stock pot about ½ to ¾ full of water and place over to high heat to boil
2.      Once boiling add 1 tsp salt and noodles to water, boil for 12-15 minutes
3.      In a medium fry pan on medium-high heat add olive oil, turkey, & onion.
4.      Once meat is cooked and onions are translucent add all seasonings.
5.      Next, add pasta sauce and mushrooms, reduce heat to low and simmer about 10-15 minutes.
6.      Mix in 1 cup of sharp cheddar cheese.
7.      Now, drain the noodles & serve with sauce

Make sure to have grated parmesan cheese to top off this excellent dish. Serve with a crisp green salad and everyone is sure to smile.
