  • 1 (16 ounce) package rotini pasta
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon ground oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 (32 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; cook the rotini at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes; drain.
  2. Combine turkey, onion, salt, black pepper, oregano, garlic powder, cinnamon, cumin, and cayenne pepper in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir until turkey is browned, about 10 minutes. Add spaghetti sauce, reduce heat, and simmer for 10 minutes. Pour over rotini.
