Number of Servings: 8


    1 T Smart Balance Light Buttery Spread
    1 large onion, chopped
    3 large stalks celery, chopped
    2 large carrots, chopped
    1 cup white wine
    1 cup low fat milk
    1 pound 93% fat free Ground Turkey
    2 28-ounce can diced tomatoes
    1 tsp ground numeg
    1/2 tsp black pepper


Melt Smart Balance in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, celery and carrots and saute until softened, about 5 minutes. Turn heat up, add turkey and break up meat with a spoon. Cook until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Season with black pepper and nutmeg.

Pour in milk and wine and bring to a boil. Lower heat and cook at a lively boil until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 15 minutes.

Transfer mixture to slow cooker, stir in tomatoes, cover and cook for 8 hours. Choose low or high setting depending on your crockpot. Sauce should cook at a lively simmer, but not stick/burn to the bottom of the crockpot. Remove cover, stir and cook until sauce is slightly thickened, about 30 minutes longer.

Serve over pasta or rice. The calories and nutrients for the pasta or rice is not included in the totals for this recipe.

My whole family LOVES this sauce! It's easy and inexpensive to prepare. Tastes like you spent hours in the kitchen, when the crockpot actually does all the work!!
