Homemade Spaghetti Sauce

Proof that this stuff is GOOD!
Sauted Onions
Garlic, Onions, and Turkey browning....
Finished Product...

I have tried a lot of spaghetti sauces out there, and this one- umm, umm- it takes the cake... or noodles if you will! It's from my sister's blog, the only difference is that I add some wine to mine. A tip for you- double it up, make a batch of 2, eat one and freeze the other. I did this the last time I made it in a big pot and it was great to come home from vacation with a homemade meal that was ready in 20 minutes when we returned!

1 lb ground turkey
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
I can tomato sauce
1 can diced tomatoes
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp oregano
3 TBSP parmesan cheese
1 TBSP fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 cup red wine
Brown Rice Noodles (available at Trader Joe's)

Start boiling your water for the noodles, add them once you have a rapid bowl, follow directions on the package for them. Next, using a big pot (if you're doubling a batch) or a frying pan (for single batch) add your olive oil, chopped onion, and garlic (fresh if you have it or frozen cubes from Trader Joe's). Let it saute until the onions are browned and translucent, then add the turkey and cook until browned. Add the remaining ingredients, tomatoes, tomato sauce, seasoning, wine and parmesan. Cook covered for 15 minutes. Dish up your noodles and scoop on some chunky sauce, top with fresh parmesan and parsley if you'd like- you're gonna love it!
