Spaghetti Skillet dinner and Spinach Salad

I love this recipe, I will probably use this instead of making regular spaghetti.
Spaghetti Skillet Dinner:
1/4 lb hamburger
1/4 lb ground turkey
1/2 minced onion
1 clove garlic
Brown on the brown setting of the pressure cooker pan.
1-15 oz. can tomato sauce
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 can mushrooms or fresh mushrooms
1 cup water
2 sliced celery ribs
4 ozs. uncooked spaghetti
1 1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. Salt
Be sure the spaghetti is covered completely with the sauce
Pressure 6 minutes, natural release.

From the Fertlawn newsletter.
Spinach Salad with Pears, Pecans and Feta Cheese:
1/2 cup Pecans
Toast the pecans in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, stirring often, for 3 to 4 minutes or until lightly browned and fragrant.  Tip onto a plate and let cool. Then cut up into pieces.
1 Tlb. Rice or White wine vinegar
1-2 Tlb. Honey
2 Tlb. Oil
1/2 tsp salt and pepper
whisk in a bowl, set aside.
In the Salad Bowl:
3 Tb. Chopped red onion
2 large red or green pears, cut in squares.  We had a green pear, but the salad would really look pretty with red pears.
1-6 oz bag baby spinach
Mix the onion, pears and spinach together.
Pour the dressing over the pears, onion and spinach.
Sprinkle on 3 oz. feta cheese, crumbled, and the pecans.
Since we don't like feta cheese, we used parmesan cheese.
Rlynn made the salad while I made the Spaghetti, they were both delicious, and they made a complete filling meal.
