Serves:  4             Cook time:  30 min

     -  1 lb. spaghetti noodles
     -  2 Tbl olive oil
     -  1 onion, chopped
     -  2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
     -  1 lb. ground turkey
     -  Salt and pepper to taste
     -  1 (28 oz) can diced tomatoes
     -  1 tsp. crushed red pepper
     -  1/4 c. chopped parsley
     -  2 Tbl grated Parmesan, plus more for serving

1)  In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the pasta according to package directions until al dente; drain, reserving 1 cup pasta cooking water.
2)  Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat; add the onion and cook until softened, about 8 minutes.
3)  Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute more.  Increase heat to medium-high, crumble in the turkey and season with salt and pepper.  Cook until the turkey is just no longer pink, about 5 minutes.  Stir in the tomatoes and crushed red pepper and cook, stirring occassionally, until thickened - about 15 minutes.  Stir in parsley and cheese.
4)  Toss the pasta with the sauce and 1/2 cup reserved pasta cooking water, adding more water to thin the consistency, if desired.  Serve immediately with more cheese.
