Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Ground Turkey Tomato Sauce

Submitted by: JALICOOK

Introduction

I built on a previously submitted recipe to add frozen spinach and bell peppers to make it a little healthier.

I don't exactly measure ingredients, so please season to taste. I also added a lot of dried crushed red pepper to make up for less salt.

You can eliminate the Parmesan to save on sodium.

Ingredients

    2 pound package ground turkey
    1 large can crushed tomatoes (100 grams is the only measurement listed - I hope it's ok)
    1/2 large package frozen mixed peppers
    1/2 large package frozen spinach
    basil, oregano and dried red pepper flakes
    garlic to taste
    a couple of pinches of salt
    1 cup Parmesan cheese added to the sauce
    1 package whole wheat angel hair pasta

Directions

Slowly brown the ground turkey - if you do it slowly, you won't need to add oil at all.

Season with garlic, oregano, basil and dried red pepper. Now add more!

Add frozen vegetables.

Cover and simmer slowly until veggies are thawed.

Add crushed tomatoes and stir well

Add water leaving sauce on simmer until sauce reduces to your desired consistancy. Taste and adjust seasonings.

Follow directions for pasta. Drain without rinsing,

Serve with salad.
