Spinach Pasta with Meat Sauce

Orlando likes using the 93/7 ground turkey. Meaning 93% meat, 7% fat. He feels that anything less is so high in fat that you might as well use the ground beef…but the 99% fat free ground turkey is so lean that he finds it too dry for certain meals. We avoid SUGAR mainly, so a little fat doesn’t scare us.

So, on to the recipe…

MEAT SAUCE

  • 2 – 2 1/2 lbs ground turkey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • onions, chopped
  • 3 cloves chopped garlic
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • mix of oregano, basil and thyme
  • peas, carrots, and any other veggies you want to sneak in 🙂
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1 small can of Rotelle tomato paste
  • 3 chopped tomatoes

DIRECTIONS:

  • Cook the spinach pasta according to the instructions on the box

FOR THE GRAND FINALE:

Grate a nice block of Manchego cheese over the finished plate.
