This might be my favorite and fastest weeknight dinner ever! Pasta and sauce cook all together a la hamburger helper method and is ready in a snap. As long as you're using mild rotel, this is a really good kid-friendly meal as well. These portions are quite large and the carbs are a little high for a meal for my macros BUT so is that protein! I've definitely had half a serving for a meal or snack, but absolutely am all for eating the full portion.

Spray a large, deep skillet with nonstick cooking spray and set over medium heat. Saute onion, garlic and ground turkey with salt and pepper, breaking apart as the meat cooks.
Once turkey is thoroughly cooked, stir in taco seasoning, Rotel, chicken stock and broken spaghetti pieces. Cover and bring to boil, then reduce to simmer and cook until spaghetti has softened, 7 minutes or so.
While spaghetti is cooking, whisk flour and evaporated milk together until smooth. Once spaghetti is al dente, add in milk-flour mixture and cook until sauce has thickened. Stir in grated cheese, corn and green onions. Divide into four portions and serve.
