If using 24 oz turkey, follow same instructions as 12 oz ground turkey, adding 1/4 tsp. salt.
If using ground beef or ground pork, follow same instructions as ground turkey.
If using bacon, line a plate with a paper towel. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add bacon to hot pan. Flip occasionally until crisp, 6-8 minutes. Transfer to towel-lined plate to remove excess oil. Crumble, and add to penne as garnish.
