Ingredients

    1 Tbls Olive oil
    1 red onion- chopped(1.5 cups)
    1 orange or yellow bell pepper- chopped(1 cup)
    8oz mushrooms coarsely chopped
    1 14oz can artichoke hearts- quartered NOT saved in oil!Don't drain the fluid!
    5 large cloves garlic- crushed
    1 Tbls dry basil(or 2 fresh-finely chopped)
    .5 teas salt and pepper(each)
    2/3 cup dry wine(red or white)
    2 teas worchestershire sauce
    2 Tbls balsamic vinegar
    32 oz jar pasta sauce-50cals per 1/2 cup- I use classico tomato basil brand
    1 Tbls "better than Boullion" low sodium beef flavor

Directions

In a large pot over med-hi heat place oil , peppers onion, mushrooms, and basil. Cook till onion tender.

Add garlic and turkey and cook till meat is browned- stirring and breaking up mean constantly.

Add undrained artichokes, salt and pepper, wine, worchestershire, balsamic and boullion. Stir to mix well and cook uncovered appx 10 minutes until most of liquid is gone.

Add pasta sauce- reduce heat to simmer- cover and cook 30 mor minutes.

Meanwhile cook pasta of your choice in boiling salted water(2oz dry per person)

When ready to serve divide pasta and top with sauce. Serve with a green salad! and offer parmesan to sprinkle over if your guests choose. Makes 8 generous 1 cup servings of sauce. The pasta will add additional calories- nut on most cases allowing 2 oz dry pasta this will give you 8 huge servings at roughly 450 cals per serving and virtually NO fat! They will never miss it! My Italian hubby never has!( wink)
