I was a little bored with the standard old spaghetti and this was what I came up with, it did the trick for me. It can also be done vegetarian style. Loved it!
3-4 C whole crushed tomatoes (or 28oz can crushed tomatoes)
1 sml can tomato paste
1 can (4 oz) green chiles - mild
3/4 tsp basil
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp sage
pinch of bay leaves
1/2 tsp garlic salt (or to taste)
1 tsp garlic
1 Tbl sugar
1/2 tsp pepper
fresh basil to snip on top for garnish before serving
* place all ingredients in pan and let simmer on low for 1 hour. As with most sauces the longer it simmers the richer the flavor.
1lb natural ground turkey (optional)
1 med sized onion - finely chopped
* brown turkey with onion, drain and add to above sauce
1 small pkg whole wheat spaghetti noodles - boiled and rinsed
1 small zucchini - sliced
1/2 red bell pepper sliced
asparagus - not sure how to measure that one just, just do how ever much you like
* place sliced vegetables in one layer on cooking stone OR cookie sheet, drizzle olive oil on vegetables, sprinkle with salt and pepper and broil on high for 7-10 minutes until slightly tender.
Serve spaghetti with sauce on top and garnish with vegetables, fresh basil and grated Parmesan.
