Turkey meat sauce is a recipe I have been making for years but I never make it the same way I am always doing some editing, until now! Why I hadn’t thought to utilize my food processor before is beyond me! This quick easy delicious and not to mention healthy recipe is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters.
- 1 28oz. can of Whole Plum Tomatoes with Juice
- 2 carrots, chopped
- 1 clove garlic
- 2 tbsp. EVOO
- 1/2 cup sweet onion, chopped
-1/2 cup celery, chopped
- 1 package of ground turkey meat (can substituent with any ground meat)
- white wine
- basil (if desired)
- oregano (of desired)
- salt and pepper
-heavy cream (if desired)
Pulse the carrot and garlic in a food processor until the garlic is finely chopped. Add the tomatoes and their juices, oil and a 1/4 tsp of salt and pepper and pulse until finely chopped.
Transfer sauce to a pot and simmer until thickened 20-25 minutes.
Meanwhile heat 1 tbsp of EVOO in large pan. Saute celery and onion until tender, about 5 minutes.
Add turkey meat to pan and break up into small pieces, about 4 minutes. Next add in 1/2 cup dry white wine and bring to a simmer.
Next stir in the tomato sauce (this is when you would add the cream as well if you so choose) next season with oregano and basil and it is ready to be served.
I prefer to eat this dish prepared with zucchini linguine or occasionally some whole wheat pasta with of course some leafy greens or other green vegetable.
