2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 yellow onion, diced
1 tablespoon fennel seeds
1 pound ground turkey
1 (25-ounce) jar roasted garlic marinara sauce (or your favorite flavor)
8 ounces quinoa or other whole-grain pasta spirals
1. Heat oil in a large, heavy skillet with lid over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until translucent, stirring frequently, about 8 minutes. Add fennel and stir 1 minute more. Add turkey and sauté until almost cooked through, breaking up clumps. Add marinara sauce and simmer, covered, 15 minutes. Remove from heat.
2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to boil. Add pasta and cook al dente,
7–10 minutes (or per package instructions). Drain, mix into sauce, and serve immediately.
