Turkey Spaghetti Sauce

Today’s post is from guest contributor Jennifer Johal of JJ’s Kitchen:
This is a great one for the freezer. Defrost, heat up, and add pasta. I actually do half spaghetti, half zucchini put through my “Veggetti” (it turns vegetables into pasta like noodles – amazing!). This time of year can be tough to find good quality, fresh vegetables so this is a good one to do in batches.

You will need:

  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1 can diced or crushed tomatoes
  • 2 carrots, peeled and chopped into small pieces
  • 2 rib celery, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper to taste

Looks fantastic – and super healthy.  No added sugars, you regulate the salt and a healthy, lean-meat option without losing flavour!

Thank you so much JJ!



  Have a great one!
