Home-made pasta sauce is delicious, but also quite time-consuming. So I've found a great almost home-made pasta sauce that's easy to make. This recipe makes enough for a dinner, left-overs, and two jars worth to freeze for another time.
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp chopped garlic
1/2 white onion, chopped
1 1/2 lbs lean ground turkey (ground beef also works)
1/2 green bell pepper, diced
2 carrots, sliced
1 can stewed tomatoes, drained
5-7 basil leaves, julienned
2 small zucchini, sliced
2-3 handfuls fresh baby spinach
salt, pepper and oregano to taste
2 jars plain store-bought marinara
1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-medium high heat. Add the chopped garlic and cook until light brown.
