Spaghetti is a main stay for the American home. Next to pizza, it seems to be the dish that is the easiest to get fussy children to eat. Low fat dieters love spaghetti. The noodles and sauce have virtually no fat. If you use ground turkey, you will have less fat than using ground beef or sausage. Spaghetti is also a dish that feeds a crowd. When unexpected guests drop by on the weekend, and stay too long, whip up a pot of spaghetti! Here is an easy recipe that will feed a family of five.
Things You’ll Need:
- One (1 lb) box of spaghetti noodles
- Two (1 lb 10 oz)jars of Ragu, any flavor
- One pound of ground turkey
- One pound of Italian sausage, hot or mild your choice
- One onion
- One green pepper
- One container of fresh mushrooms
- Fresh garlic to taste
In a large stovetop pot, fill with water and add two tablespoons of oil to prevent the spaghetti noodles from sticking.
In another large pot, cover the bottom with olive oil. Cut the Italian sausage in pieces that resemble meatballs and put them in the oil. Start cooking this on medium heat while you chop the other ingredients. Chop pepper, garlic, onion and mushrooms and add to the sausage. Start the pot of water boiling for your noodles. Stirring meat mixture occasionally, simmer for 8 minutes. Add the ground turkey and brown.
When the meat is cooked through, drain. In the same pot, empty contents of Ragu jars. Add meat mixture. Turn on low or simmer and cover. Add spaghetti noodles to boiling water and cook until tender. Drain and rinse with hot water. Drain completely. Add noodles to hot sauce. Stir.
Serve with a fresh tossed salad and garlic bread.
