Recipe by RedVinoGirl
READY IN: 50mins




  • Heat the oil in a heavy large frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the carrot and celery and saute until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the turkey and saute 1 minute.
  • Add the marinara sauce. Decrease the heat to medium-low and simmer gently for 15 minutes to allow the flavors to blend, stirring often.
  • Stir in the basil. Season the sauce, to taste, with salt and pepper.
  • (The sauce can be made 1 week ahead. Cool the sauce completely, then transfer it to a container and freeze for future use. Bring the sauce to a simmer before using.).
  • Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti in a large pot of boiling salted water until just tender but still firm to bite, stirring often, about 8 minutes. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid.
  • Add the pasta to the sauce and toss to coat, adding enough reserved cooking liquid to moisten as needed. Serve with the Parmesan.
