I love making homemade tomato sauces and decided to use ground turkey instead of ground beef to make it a little more healthier. This homemade tomato sauce with ground turkey is going to be used for a lasagna and a stuffed shells dish. Also, a little hint whenever I use tomatos from a can, I always fill the cans about a quarter way up with water to rinse and make sure I get all the tomatoes out of the can. Just pour the watered tomato sauce into the pot. I probably made at least 8 cups of sauce with this recipe. You can use the sauce right away or freeze for future use. Here is the recipe for how I made the lasagna using this tomato sauce with ground turkey instead of the one in the recipe.
Homemade Tomato Sauce with Ground Turkey
1 pound ground turkey
15 ounce can diced tomatoes
28 ounce can tomato sauce
28 ounce can tomato puree
6 ounce can tomato paste
1 tablespoon granulated garlic
2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
1 tablespoon parsley
½ teaspoon red chili flakes
1 tablespoon olive oil
In a large pan, over medium-high heat, add olive oil. Add ground turkey. Break up ground turkey with wooden spoon and continue cooking until no longer pink.
Cover and simmer on low for 30 minutes.
