Elizabeth's Turkey Stir Fry

This is a great dinner for those nights when I forgot to defrost the meat. I can still have dinner on the table within twenty minutes, from start to finish!

Sautee onions and garlic in olive oil.

Add one pound of ground turkey. This works even if it is not completely defrosted!

Keep flipping over the turkey, shaving off the cooked parts with a spatula until the entire pound is completely cooked to a light brown color.

In the meantime, cook pasta and spinach together. Add frozen spinach at the same time as the pasta; add fresh spinach after the pasta starts to simmer. Keep lid on for the steam to help cook the spinach.

Serve stir fried turkey over the pasta and spinach. If you toss the drippings from the turkey into the pasta, you will not need to add olive oil to the pasta.

Another night, I made this with the addition of mushrooms. The mushrooms would be added towards the beginning, around the circumference of the meat.
