Directions

Heat the oil in a heavy large frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes.

Add the carrot and celery and saute until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes.

Add the turkey and saute 1 minute. Add the marinara sauce. Decrease the heat to medium-low and simmer gently for 15 minutes to allow the flavors to blend, stirring often. Stir in the basil. Season the sauce, to taste, with salt and pepper. (This sauce can be frozen and used up to a week later.)

Boil pasta till firm to the bite (about 8 - 10 minutes depending on pasta). Combine with sauce and serve with freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
