Dinner is a part-time job in the house.  Oh sure, I can chicken tender and PBJ till the cows come home, but I keep challenging myself to finding something the kids will eat.  The kids will eat this. It starts with almost a spaghetti base, but is thinned out with chicken broth.  To it, I add ground turkey, a bean of your choice, carrots, celery, whole tomatoes and some garlic kielbasa.  Save this recipe and best of luck!
