This is one of our favorite sauces to top pasta.  It doesn't need a lot of salt since the mixture of vegetables blended together give it plenty of flavor on its own.
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup onions
  • 1/2 cup celery
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup red pepper
  • 1/2 cup green pepper
  • 1 15oz can diced Italian tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 4 oz Jennie o lean ground turkey
  • 6 oz whole wheat pasta
  • 1 tbsp chopped garlic
Preheat a medium saute pan on medium heat with the 1 tbsp olive oil.  add garlic and cook for 1 minute.  Add other vegetables except tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes.  add the canned tomatoes and the Italian seasonings and simmer for 5 minutes more.  Remove from heat and pour into food processor bowl and pulse until desired consistency, set aside. 
Brown the ground turkey in a sprayed pan until done, grind in food processor and add to the vegetable sauce.  Pour into a saute pan and heat thoroughly before using.


  1. Debbie,
    Thanks for atopping by my blog and being my newest follower. Your bolognese recipe is similar to mine. We try to eat healthy, low fat, low sodium, due to my husband's bypass.

    If you are GF and watching sugar and carbs, too, check our Carolyn's site if low carb, GF, and she has even written a cookbook.

  2. I love the recipe Debbie. I usually use a jar as a base. I love that this is completely from scratch and very simple ingredients.
