Coat an extra-large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat the skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground turkey mixture and onion; cook 6 to 8 minutes or until browned, using a wooden spoon to break up meat as it cooks. Remove from skillet; cover and keep warm.
Add the water to the same skillet; bring to boiling over medium-high heat. Add pasta; cook according to package directions until al dente. Drain pasta, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid. Return pasta and the reserved cooking liquid to the skillet; stir in tomato sauce, salt and cooked turkey. Heat through. Remove from heat; stir in spinach. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
