Last night I wanted something simple and fast to whip up. We decided to go swimming around 5pm, which is often dinnertime in our home. We had a blast. I eventually had to get out of the pool because the baby was not napping and the monitor was going nuts. Jackson and Jason stayed swimming. I had Alex, who wanted to play and be by me in general. I kind of wanted to play too! Which I did. So simple it was. My meat sauce is the easiest!



Red Meat Sauce for Pasta or Zoodles

  • 1lb white meat ground turkey
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, pressed
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp Italian Seasoning. I use this
  • Several handfuls of spinach, chopped
  • 1 Jar all natural pasta sauce. I use Mario Batali Tomato Basil Check out the ingredients. No junk is added. No added sugars. All natural ingredients. There are even carrots in it! So it is my go to pasta sauce.
  • Cooked pasta of your choice or zoodles. The boys had pasta I had zoodles.

Prepare a pot with boiling water for your pasta. Once boiling add your noodles and cook until al dente.

Heat garlic and olive oil in a large pan. Add the turkey. Begin to brown. Add the vinegar and Italian seasoning. Mix well. Continue to brown. Once all pieces look like they have begun to cook, add the spinach and again mix well. Let spinach wilt a bit. Add sauce and bring to a simmer. Let sauce continue to simmer until your pasta is done.

Meanwhile if you are opting for zoodles, take 2 zucchinis (more if you are feeding more than one person with them) and spiralize them with your spiralizer. 5 minutes before you’re ready to serve the meal, sauté the zucchini in a drizzle of olive oil until the zoodles are tender.

Serve sauce over your noodle of choice!
