I love Food Network and Cooking Channel. All through college and when I lived alone, Food Network was constantly on, and I learned a lot of my cooking skills by just watching cooking shows without even trying to replicate the recipes exactly. I would just use the shows as inspirations for meals. A few weeks ago, I had 5 Ingredient Fix on while I was folding clothes and her recipe for Turkey Robinson stuck in my mind.
I decided to give my own spin on it by omitting the beans and using peas instead of spinach. I had read some reviews that it could be a little bland so I heavily seasoned the turkey meat with onion powder as well.
I served the turkey over bowtie pasta. It was a little under seasoned but some grated parmesan on top added the perfect amount of salt. I really liked how light the meal was since the sauce was just chicken broth, and none of the flavors overpowered the rest. Ground beef would have been too heavy and overpowering.
Kevin doesn’t like turkey nearly as much as chicken or beef, but I think he’s warming up to it.
Parko went to daycare today to get some socialization where he got a bath. After Parko is bathed, they always put him in a bandana, and it just warms my heart.
Kevin hates when they put the bandana on him because he feels like it emasculates him, but he lets Parko keep it on for a few hours to humor me. I love the bandana!
Do you ever cook with ground turkey? What’s your favorite cooking show?
