Weeknight Dinner For Two no.2


  1. Sauté one cup of lean #groundturkey in a pan. Add salt, pepper,and garlic powder.  Break up the meat with a wooden spoon as you stir.
  2. Once the turkey meat is browned, it is time to add my version of marinara sauce by using the ingredients shown below. Give it a good stir and turn down the heat to medium-low. Keep an eye on it until the sauce reaches  the consistency you like.IMG_3450.JPGAt this point, you can bring a pot of water to boiling point and cook the #pennepasta.  Once the pasta is cooked, drain it, and combine with the sauce. Turn off the heat and keep the lid on.  It’s time to make the Red Cabbage Slaw as side dish.
  3.  For the slaw: chop or shred half of a small red cabbage, toss it with some dressing, and top it with sprinkles of #sunflowerseeds.  Let’s make the #vinaigrettedressing:  please note that I do not measure my dressing.  I add and taste as I go. Combine the ingredients shown in the picture, whisking the oil last. Taste and adjust if needed.

Time to serve. Dinner is ready!

Total prep and cook time: about an hour

Note: This recipe will have leftovers, even though it says “dinner for two”.  We always have some left for later.  Bon Appetit!

  1. Sounds delicious. Do you have the measurements for the various ingredients? For example, how much onion powder, agave and so on. I am not a great cook so I need the measurements. Lol.
    You are doing a great job!


  2. I would say about 1 teaspoon for the seasonings and the rest is add to taste and adjust. I seem to only measure the main ingredients and the rest, I eye and taste. When it’s time to serve, I taste again and adjust. So technically, I’m eating fro beginning to end.
