Spaghetti Sauce with Diced Tomatoes and Ground Turkey

Submitted by: STARLIGHT082307

Introduction

I make this sauce at least once a week. The baby spinach adds lots of extra nutrients and is a great lo-cal way to bulk up the sauce.

Goes well over whole wheat pasta or spaghetti topped with a bit of grated cheese. Add a side salad and you have a delicious balanced meal.
