Christine's Quick and Easy Pasta Sauce With Ground Turkey

The name really says it all about this recipe. It can be prepared and cooked in 45 minutes and poured over pasta.

My sons (now husbands) know this sauce well; I made this for them several times until they were old enough to run, I always added spaghetti (although today I used gluten free noodles ) and it was always satisfying. Sometimes I think they like it better than pizza.

The meat is optional and if left alone, this sauce is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

A note about domestic turkeys: Does the fresh meat sold in some stores seem to have glue on it? Try not to use it. Instead, get delicious turkey stock that looks like it's been ground in a meat grinder instead of turned into a paste.

Yes, I used a canned tomato product, but if you have homemade sauce, go for it. Dimensions are not specified exactly. You want a thick tomato sauce that sticks to the pasta.

Given to my sons (now sons). The recipe is no longer a secret, so use your knife skills and start cutting.

Christine's quick and easy pasta sauce
(printing procedure)
1 pound ground turkey (not lean) or other meat of your choice
4-6 cloves of garlic, peeled and finely chopped
1 large sweet onion, peeled and finely chopped
1 large red pepper, seeded and deseeded, sliced ​​1/2 inch thick.
2 small padron chilies or 1 small jalapeño chili, seeds and veins removed, chopped
1 tablespoon (or more) organic Italian herbs
1 28 oz organic peeled tomatoes (I used Muir Glen organic tomato products)
1 15 oz organic tomato sauce (preferably unpasteurized)
1 6-ounce can organic tomato paste (preferably unpasteurized)
1/4 to 1/3 cup dry red wine (can use more) to wash the pot.
A small handful of fresh basil leaves, torn
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Olive oil for the pan
If using beef, heat a heavy-based pan over medium heat.
When a drop of water boils in the pan, add 2 teaspoons of olive oil and then cut the mince into pieces.
Fry the meat for about 3 minutes, then break it up with a wooden spoon and continue to fry until no pink color appears. Drain any liquid (dog or cat waste), place in a bowl and set aside.
Add a little more olive oil to the same pan and then add the onions. Cook for about 5 minutes until smooth.
Add garlic and stir to release flavors from pan, about 2 minutes.
Add pepper, Italian seasoning and fill each pan.
Rinse the jar with red wine and pour into the pan.
Mix and chop the tomatoes with a wooden spoon.
Add cooked meat
Add the torn basil leaves, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste, stir well and simmer for about 15 minutes. At this point the pasta is ready, but if you have time you can cook it longer.

I said it was easy.
