Zesty Turkey Meat Sauce for Spaghetti

September 27, 2011 at 8:19 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Spaghetti with meat sauce is one of my favorite meals, and this version lightens up the old classic without losing much flavor.  It’s quick and easy, and you won’t even miss the beef and sausage (not too much, at least).

You’ll need:

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Italian seasoning
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • One 28-ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup red wine

Heat up the olive oil in a large saucepan with the garlic and italian seasoning over medium heat.  After about a minute, add the ground turkey.

“Brown” the turkey until it is cooked through.

Now, add all the remaining ingredients, and reduce the heat to a simmer.

Simmer over low heat for an additional 30 minutes (or more, however much time you have really!), and serve with your favorite spaghetti-like pasta!
