Saturday Recipe Swap--Spaghetti with Spicy Turkey Meat Sauce

Hi Guys! Happy Saturday! The sun is shining! At breakfast we were praying for the food, and after-wards I asked her (she's 2) Julia, who are we praying to? She goes, "Jesus!" and then began singing "Jesus loves me this I know..." as if to help me understand...it was soooooo cute! Love her!

If you haven't noticed already, I really enjoy Rachel Ray's Meals. When I first had Julia, Rachel Ray really inspired me to get creative in the kitchen again and I began to love cooking! This is a simple recipe, that you may have made before, but with that extra Something Special to liven up an ordinary meal! Have fun!

Don't forget to drop by Suzette's Kitchen to see what she's got cooking, and feel free to post your own recipe to swap with us. http://godlyrose.blogspot.com
