Skillet Cheeseburger Pasta

I am always looking for new ways to prepare food. I saw this recipe and liked that there were ingredients I regularly have in my kitchen. The recipe initially calls for ground beef, but I used ground turkey meat. I don't eat beef, and I ground turkey is a healthier alternative. I've also never made any kind of casserole , and Im always into trying new ways to prepare food. 

It tasted amazing , and was a great alternative to simple burgers and french fries. 

This is a great dish to get out of the "what to cook for dinner" rut, please comment at let us know if you enjoyed the meal!

  1. This looks pretty tasty. The next time I'm able to cook I'll definitely give this a shot when I'm in the kitchen throwing down.
