This is a fantastic, low fat spaghetti sauce I just tried out the other night. Delicious!
- 1 1⁄4 lbs ground turkey
- 1 yellow onion, chopped
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
- 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1 tablespoon dried oregano
- 1 tablespoon dried basil
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
- 1 tablespoon butter
- In a 4 1/2 quart pot/pan brown the ground turkey over medium heat.
- Add the onion and garlic and cook until softened.
- Add tomato paste and crushed tomatoes, stirring until all is combined.
- Add chicken broth to thin it down a little bit.
- Add spices, butter, and salt and pepper and allow to simmer over low heat for about 15 minutes (just long enough to boil the water and cook the pasta!).
- Taste and adjust seasonings to preference.
Absolutely excellent! My first time cooking with turkey of any kind and was weary about it, but this recipe calmed my fears! I didn't have crushed tomatoes so I used 2 1/2 cups fresh tomatoes from my garden and diced them up. It was great! My 11 year old loved it too!
Super good sauce. I wasn't going to add the butter, but I'm really glad that I did. It add so much to the sauce. It tastes great right now but I'm going to serve it tomorrow night only because I think these types of sauces always taste better the next day. Thanks so much for posting this healthy tasty recipe!
I loved this sauce! I used olive oil in place of the butter and fresh oregano and basil in place of the dried. It's was very flavorful. Thanks for posting!
