A healthier spaghetti dinner with ground turkey, whole wheat noodles and a simple, and simply divine, homemade sauce.
I use a package that is 1.25 pounds of ground turkey and we like the 7% fat variety. If you use a higher fat content (such as the 15%), you may need to drain some of the oil from the browned turkey before adding in your sauce. Alternatively, you could sub ground beef or a mix of ground meats. Just don't leave too much grease in the pan; it'll weigh down your sauce.
Make ahead: You can certainly make the spaghetti sauce ahead of time and can even cook the turkey ahead. Then just warm the meat and sauce mixture up in a saute pan while you’re cooking your spaghetti noodles. And then this is ready in 15 minutes (boiling water + cooking noodles time). Ta-da!
