Sloppy Noodles

1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 onion, diced
1 lb ground turkey
1 1/2 tbsp ground cumin
1 tsp black pepper
2 tbsp BBQ sauce
1 tbsp sour cream
1 tbsp parsley, finely chopped
2 cups spinach, roughly chopped

Kandice: Ok, ok. The name of this recipe does not sound the most appealing or appetizing, but hear me out. The day that I created this recipe I had a real hankering for some noodles and a sloppy joe (or steamer as some people call it). I didn’t want the extra calories from the buns of the sandwich, so I thought that I would try creating a sloppy joe mixture and put it on my penne pasta. Thus the creation of Sloppy Noodles came to be.

It’s actually very good despite how the name sounds. To make Sloppy Pasta I first minced the garlic and chopped the onion and placed them in a bowl together. In another bowl I combined the spinach and parsley. Preparation done; simple right? Then over medium-high heat, in a non-stick pan I poured a little oil and added the onion and garlic mixture. I sautéed these ingredients until they were slightly browned. Next I added the ground turkey and spices. Once the turkey was fully cooked I poured on the BBQ sauce. I let the flavors of the BBQ cook into the turkey a little before I added the sour cream. After combining the sour cream into the pan, I stirred in the parsley and spinach. I cooked the spinach until it was wilted, which was approximately 2 – 4 minutes. Once the spinach is cooked, I served my “sloppy joe” over some noodles.

If you or your family enjoys sloppy joes then this is definitely a recipe for you. It is very simple and quick recipe to make. Everyone will love it. I made this recipe two times over the week. The second time I made it I added some green beans into the mixture to add more greens. This is recommended, but for those who don’t like green beans it is optional. I do hope that you enjoy this sloppy recipe. ^_^
