I love spaghetti and ever since my husband and I went to Italy we love homemade spaghetti sauce even more! In my sauce I use turkey because I like the flavor and it’s lean, but you could make this sauce with any other meat or just leave out the meat your choice. I hope you like our sauce.
Time: 20-30 minutes
1/2 an onion
3 cloves of garlic, minced (or 1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder)
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 28oz can of crushed tomatoes (I like CENTO all purpose crushed tomatoes)
1 Tablespoon dried oregano
1 or 2 bay leaves
1 Tablespoon of sugar
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 lb. ground turkey or other meat
Heat olive oil in a large saucepan. Add ground meat, salt and pepper to taste, onions, and cook on medium heat. Once meat is almost brown, add oregano and red pepper flakes. When meat has finished cooking turn heat to med-low, add can of crushed tomatoes, sugar and bay leaves. May add more salt and pepper to your taste. Cook until heated through. Remove bay leaves before serving and serve over hot noodles (we like fettuccine). Enjoy!
