Recipe Ingredients for Quick and Dirty Meat Sauce

1 lb. ground turkey
1 c. chopped onion
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp dried basil
2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 c dried parsley
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
56 oz tomato
30 oz. canned tomato sauce
1 1/2 c. red wine
1/2 c. Parmesan cheese, grated

Recipe Directions for Quick and Dirty Meat Sauce

  1. Note: For the 56 oz. tomato, I typically use pureed tomatoes.

  2. Brown the turkey with the onion and garlic in a large saucepan, then drain any excess fat.

  3. Add the basil, oregano, parsley, salt and pepper and stir in, cooking for another minute or so.

  4. Add the tomato puree, tomato sauce, and wine. Stir in and bring to a simmer. Simmer uncovered for 15 minutes or longer. The longer it simmers, the thicker it gets.

  5. Serve over your favorite pasta and top with grated parmesan.
