Tomato Meat Sauce

This is an AWESOME tomato meat sauce and i recommend it with fresh spaghetti or rigatoni. It's great for family meals or when you are cooking for others.

- 3 tbs extra virgin olive oil
- ½ - 1 diced onion
- 1 tbs garlic-shallot puree
- 1 tbs dried basil leaves
- 1 tbs oregano
- 1 lb lean ground turkey or beef
- 1/3 cup sherry wine
- 2x 28oz cans crushed organic tomatoes
- 15oz organic tomato sauce
- 6oz tomato paste
- 1 dried bay leaf


Put your stove on high and add the olive oil, onion, garlic puree, basil, and oregano.

Cook for 1-2 mins to soften the onion.

Next add the turkey; break it up as you put it in.

Cook on high until the turkey is cooked through. Be sure to be stirring the whole time to mix the ingredients and to break up the turkey well.

Once the turkey is cooked, add the sherry wine. Stir and cook for a minute.

Now it's time to add ALL of the tomato products and the bay leaf. Be sure to mix the sauce well.

Let the mixture come back to a boil then set the stove on low. Place the lid back on and let the sauce simmer for at least 30 minutes.

After that, it's ready to serve. Enjoy!

Sounds delicious Clayton.

How many does this usually serve? I'm guessing a lot!

Do you pour it over pasta or meat sometimes too?

Thanks so much for sending this recipe in.

I'm not sure how many it serves but it lasts me a long time, so probably a lot. It depends on what you are serving it with and how much each person would use.

I've never tried serving it on meat, but I'm sure it would be pretty good.
