Dariel's Stop: Home for the Holidays Hop With The Romance Troupe

Welcome to my stop on the Home For the Holidays Hop!! Happy to see you here. What better combination than a book and delicious food? I hope you'll take a look at some of my books while you're here, and of course, give this family recipe a try. It's one of my faves - hot and spicy :-) Let's get the formalities out of the way first...be sure to leave a comment with your email address to enter the Rafflecopter and grand prize giveaways. Remember, NO EMAIL = NO ENTRY.

In addition to the uber-awesome prizes in the overall hop (Grand prizes), I'm offering a few goodies myself. You'll see them in the Rafflecopter belos. If you love shifters, give my "Dark Sentinels" series a look. I'm promoting them right now since I'm planning to release the prequel and book three early next year. People are starting to say wonderful things about "Dark Sentinels Book One: Sable" and "Dark Sentinels Book Two: Torin," and now there's a paperback with "Sable" and "Torin" in the same huggable, touchable book. Here's a peek at the covers with links if you're interested, and we'll get right to the recipe!

Oh, one more thing - the grand prizes!

Raye's Meaty Cheesy Creole Spaghetti
1Lb. Ground Turkey
1Lb.Turkey Sausage
2 Lb. medium Shrimp
1 - 2 Large Onions (to your taste)
2 Large Bell Peppers
1/2 - 4 oz. jar of Minced Garlic
1/2 pack of Spaghetti (about 1/2 Lb.)
1 Can of Campbell's Cheddar Cheese Soup
1 cup Hot Salsa (more if you like it hotter)
1 jar of Classico Roasted Garlic Alfredo Sauce
1 jar of Spaghetti Sauce w/vegetables ( I like extra sauce so I use 2)
Butt Rub OR Blackened Seasoning

1.Spaghetti texture is key, so take care of that first. Boil spaghetti until it's done but still firm. Remove from heat, drain, separate lightly with fork and let stand in colander uncovered.

2. Slice bell pepper and onion in large pieces and set aside.

3. Place frozen shrimp in covered microwave safe dish, add a few drops of water, and heat for 3 - 4 minutes (in microwave) until light pink.

4. Start browning ground turkey in large skillet while shrimp heats, add sliced bell pepper and onion, and season to taste with Butt Rub OR Blackened Seasoning. Mix and stir occasionally until done.

5. Drain shrimp, remove tails, and add to skillet with ground turkey. Mix thoroughly.

6. Slice turkey sausage into bite-size pieces, DO NOT add water, heat 1 - 2 minutes in microwave.

7. Place turkey sausage, ground turkey mixture, and spaghetti in large stock pot, add minced garlic,  cheddar cheese soup, salsa, alfredo sauce, and spaghetti sauce. Mix well and heat 10 - 15 minutes.
