Ingredients
 
 

  • Olive oil spray
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 large yellow onion minced
  • 2 red bell peppers minced
  • 1 cup mushrooms minced
  • 2 zucchini peeled and minced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • teaspoon pepper
  • 1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 15-ounce can tomato sauce
  • 1 6-ounce can tomato paste
  • 1 16-ounce box whole wheat spaghetti (or other healthy spaghetti, see above)

Instructions
 

  • Heat a large pot over medium heat, spray with olive oil and add in the turkey, onion, bell peppers, mushrooms, and zucchini.
  • Cook for 10 minutes, until the veggies start to soften. Break up the turkey as it cooks so it’s crumbled and mixed with the veggies.
  • Add in the garlic and Italian Seasoning and cook for 2 minutes until fragrant.
  • Pour in the crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste, salt and pepper and bring to light boil. Then reduce to a simmer and cook for 1-4 hours (the longer the better).
  • When the sauce is nearly done, fill a large sauce pot 2/3 full with water and a good pinch of salt. Bring to a boil.
  • Cook the spaghetti for 9-11 minutes, stirring occasionally until cooked to al dente.
  • Strain out the water, add 1 cup of the veggie bolognese sauce to the pasta pot and mix with the spaghetti to well coat it.
  • To serve add 1 cup of spaghetti to each plate, spoon over 1 cup of bolognese sauce, and serve.
