This is a basic meat sauce, made with ground turkey, which I use as a base for 4 other recipes (see my recipe list for Turkey Lasagna, Turkey Tacos, Turkey Sloppy Joes, and Turkey Chili).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a large stock pot over medium heat. Saute the onion and garlic until soft and fragrant, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add the turkey and cook until all the pinkness is gone, breaking it up with a spoon, 5-7 minutes.
  3. Crush basil and oregano between your palms. Add herbs and pepper flakes. Add diced tomatoes and tomato sauce. Reduce heat to low and simmer 15 minutes.
