Yes, I realize I used ground turkey in place of chicken, but turkey parmesan spaghetti sounds funny. Of course you can use ground chicken in place of the turkey, but the fat grams will be slightly higher per serving than what is listed in the notes section.
1cupreduced fat shredded mozzarella cheeseI used Lucerne brand

fresh basilfor garnish, optional
Bring large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti according to package directions and drain.
While pasta is cooking, spray a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray and place on medium heat. Add in chopped onion, ground turkey, salt and pepper. Break meat apart as it cooks. After 5 minutes, onions should be tender and the turkey should be fully cooked. Stir in marinara sauce, onion powder and dried basil. Simmer 15 minutes.
Taste sauce and adjust seasonings. Toss with cooked spaghetti and shredded mozzarella cheese until coated in sauce and melty cheese.
In a small nonstick skillet, melt butter and toast breadcrumbs 1-2 minutes or until fragrant.
Divide pasta into four even portions, top with 1 tablespoon toasted breadcrumbs each and fresh basil (optional). Serve immediately.
