Hi friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I’m popping in this Monday morning to share a recent dinner favorite!
But first, how about that Game of Thrones finale last night?! Could it have been any more perfect?! I won’t say anything in case you’re not watching or you need to catch up, but there was definitely a scene in there that I was a big fan of, haha :)
Anyway, this is a short week for us as Nick and I prepare for our first trip to Europe together! We’ve been planning this trip since the beginning of the year. We’re traveling to Ireland, Scotland and London!
Neither of us have been to Europe so we’re stoked. We both love to travel and have only traveled out of the country together once, for our honeymoon last year. We’re renting a car in Ireland and Scotland and have an entire route planned out to drive through each country. Be sure to follow me on Instagram – I’ll be posting and keeping my IG stories up to date!
Now let’s get to today’s recipe… an easy cheesy turkey pasta dinner! When we were kids, my mom used to make Hamburger Helper (and tuna helper!). Do you remember these?! They’re actually still around, and they really do taste delicious. The problem is they’re full of preservatives and sodium, and it’s nice to make a version at home that cuts some of that out, but still tastes just as delicious.
I made a video to show you how easy it is:
It’s cheesy and saucey and delicious! We’re big fans of egg noodles. They go great with the ground turkey and spices.
This dish will become a regular of yours, it has definitely been put on our frequent dinner rotation!
