Substitution
For a fun family presentation, substitute another pasta of the same size for the wagon wheels. Try shells, rotini or spirals.
Variation
Ground beef can be used instead of the ground turkey. If you don't use a very lean beef, omit the oil.
Special Touch
Use an heirloom variety of tomato or other variety to give this skillet dinner a little different look. Try an orange, yellow, green or purple tomato instead of traditional red.
