Spaghetti Sauce

This is my simple and easy homemade spaghetti sauce. If I have access to fresh tomatoes for a good price, I'll use them in addition to the canned tomatoes.

1 lb ground turkey
1-28 oz can of diced tomatoes (or 2-14 oz cans)
1 small can of tomato paste
1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium bell pepper, chopped
3/4 c. pureed squash, sweet potato, or carrot*
1 Tbs minced garlic
2 Tbs Italian seasoning

1. Brown ground turkey in a large stock pot with a little bit of olive oil

2. Add remaining ingredients. Stir to combine.

3. Allow to simmer, covered, for one hour. Stir occassionally.

This can also be done in the crockpot. Cook on low for up to 6 hours.

* Hint you can use pureed baby food as a shortcut!

Wow, I was thinking "homemade sauce", how hard. But it is not! That looks great. I have to say, you and Tara are both, such Martha Stewarts with you homemade such. You inspire me!
