This is my "I don't want to cook"/"Oops! I didn't get to the store yet" dinner. I almost always have the ingredients on hand.

I browned a pound of ground turkey with a diced onion and a few cloves of minced garlic. Added two cans of spaghetti sauce - Hunt's brand, any flavor or combination of flavors you like - and a 28-oz can of diced tomatoes. Then 1/4 cup or so of cooking wine and some seasonings to taste - salt, pepper, basil, oregano, cayenne.

While the sauce is simmering to reduce the liquid, I cook up a pound of whatever pasta I have on hand.

That's dinner, folks.

If you want to get a bit more fancy with it, adding a couple of diced carrots and a couple of stalks of diced celery with the onion and garlic will veg it up a bit. Bell peppers are also a nice addition. But really, just the fact that you didn't just open the can and pour it over the pasta will make it a hit.
