A Light Turkey Meat Sauce Hits the Spot
For those of you who know me personally can vouch for how much I love hearty foods. One of my favorite things to eat is pasta with meat sauce, but who are we kidding, we can't eat that way all the time. The recipe I'll tell you about shortly combines hearty (gnocchi) with light (turkey meat sauce), which I think makes for a great combination.
I got the original recipe from the September edition of Martha Stewart's Everyday Food Magazine, which actually called for a full fat, ground chuck meat sauce. Altering it to my liking with a 99% lean turkey version and omitting all that parmesan cheese, it turned out quite well and something we ended up freezing and using for other things such as pizza sauce, hero sauce, pasta sauce and the like.
The sauce was delicious when served fresh but even better when you let it sit for at least a day or two. Hope you enjoy it during the cold fall/winter months that are up ahead. Dig in, and do let me know what you think.
