Mom’s Spaghetti

I remember making this dish an endless amount of times with my mom. I would stand on a chair just to reach the stove top so I could actually see what was in the pot!

Once I got older I would sneak in spices and other ingredients when she wasn’t looking(;

I finally got to make her spaghetti my way this time with a little extra flavor that I always knew it needed! Regardless this will always be my mom’s dish that I love to make!

Let’s get into it!

I’m so proud of my fresh thyme plant! What should I name it? He he


1. One package of angel hair

2. One packet of spaghetti seasoning(McCormik)

3. One leak chopped

4. One package of mushrooms sliced

5. 5 Tbsp fresh thyme( I lurv thyme)

6. One can diced tomatoes

7. Ground turkey or beef

8. S&P

9. Olive oil

10. 1 1/2 Tbsp fresh garlic


1. In a big pot add olive oil and cool ground turkey. Fully cook through.

2. Add in mushrooms, leek, garlic and S&P.

3. Once the veggies are half way cooked through add in the fresh thyme and let toast for 2-3 minutes.
