Turkey and Eggplant Spaghetti Dinner with Garlic Pesto Sauce

This dinner was so incredibly yummy, that this photo does not do it justice!
This is a healthy dinner
Ground turkey, whole wheat pasta, eggplant and Pesto sauce
So, here we go
You need the following:
1 package Ground Turkey
1 plastic jar of Garlic Pesto Sauce
1 eggplant
3-5 cloves garlic
angel hair or thin whole wheat pasta
Nature’s Seasoning
 tiny tomatoes
First start boiling the water for your pasta 
as you are browning the turkey meat
and take the skin off your eggplant with a potato peeler
The skin is the bitter part!
now cut your eggplant into slices, place on a cookie sheet
you can coat them with olive oil or spray on I can’t believe it’s not butter
Cut up a few cloves of garlic and place them in the pan with the meat
add 6-8 shakes of Nature’s Seasoning to the meat
add the tomatoes that you cut in half
and add the Garlic Pesto Sauce
Turn down the burner to 2.8 and cover while you finish the dinner
Now add your pasta to the water and let boil 8-10 minutes
Right after you start the pasta
Stick your eggplant in the broiler
Cook 4 mintues on one side
then turn them all over and cook 3-4 more mintues on the other side
Now the pasta should be done, your eggplant is done and your sauce is done
now stack your plate anyway you want to
  I made a plate for my son when he came in….the eggplant had time to juice up
but it tasted the same
He had this mountain of food and still asked if there was anymore
It is that GOOD
This is definitely a monthly standard dish at my house from now on!!!
I think this dinner took less than 30 minutes to make too.
