This is a fantastic, low fat spaghetti sauce I just tried out the other night. Delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a 4 1/2 quart pot/pan brown the ground turkey over medium heat.
  2. Add the onion and garlic and cook until softened.
  3. Add tomato paste and crushed tomatoes, stirring until all is combined.
  4. Add chicken broth to thin it down a little bit.
  5. 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!).
  6. 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!
