Ingredients

    10 roasted red peppers or 2 jars of roasted red peppers
    Garlic, 3 cloves
    olive oil-2tbsp for garlic, 1/4 cup later
    Red Wine Vinegar, 1/4 cup
    Jalapeno Peppers, 2 pepper (or serranno, habnero, any pepper you like)
    1 lb ground turkey or hot italian turkey sausage
    Pasta of choice OR spaghetti squash
    oregano, 1.5 tsp

Directions

cut squash in half & lay onto microwave safe dish flat side down. cover with water & then saran wrap. microwave for about 10-12min. take out let cool a bit. shred with fork to make "spaghetti"

OR starting boiling water to cook pasta

brown sausage, drain excess fat

in other pan saute garlic & jalapenos for a few minutes until 2 tbsp olive has infused and peppers are browned a little

Take out garlic and let cool for a minute, add salt to it & make a paste wiht flat part of knife. this is so the garlic isnt too overpowering and will be more of an undercurrent flavor.

place red peppers, jalapeno, infused oil and garlic into food precessor or blender. Blend until smooth.

put remaining oil into hot pan(beware of splattering) it will heat quickly. then add red pepper mixture & combine. (it will be seperated a little, just use a wisk to cmbine the oil with it). then add 1/4 cup red wine vinegar(this will give great flavor & help it keep for days in fridge). cook through until bubbbly, add sausage back to sauce and serve over pasta or squash.
