  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 cups elbow macaroni
  • 3 cups beef stock
  • 8 oz Fontina cheese grated


Instant Pot instructions:

  • Heat the olive oil on SAUTE mode with the pressure cooker's lid off.  Place the turkey into the cooker and cook until it's browned, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the remaining ingredients, except for the cheese, to the cooker.  Securely lock the lid and set on MANUAL for 6 minutes at HIGH pressure.
  • Perform a quick release to release the pressure.  Add the shredded Fontina cheese and stir until it's melted and creamy.  Serve immediately.

Slow Cooker instructions:

  • In a non-stick skillet, heat over medium heat.  Add the oil and saute the onion and turkey until it's cooked, about 5-7 minutes.  Transfer the meat and cooked onions to your slow cooker.
  • Add the remaining ingredients except for the noodles and cheese.  Cook on low for 6 hours.  About 30 minutes before the meal is finished cooking, add the noodles.  Cook on high for 30 minutes.
  • Add the cheese and stir until it's completely melted.  Serve immediately.
