  • 1 pound Italian sausage
  • 1 pound ground turkey beef or chicken can be used
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper ground
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup white wine I used Chardonnay. Or substitute chicken broth.
  • 28 ounce can diced tomatoes undrained
  • 2 tablespoons parsley fresh, chopped
  • 1/4 cup basil fresh, chopped
  • 16 ounce pasta any shape


  • In a large pan or braising pot, brown sausage and turkey (beef or chicken). Drain grease if necessary. Since I used ground turkey, I didn't have excess to drain.
  • While meat is browning, cook pasta according to directions on the package. Drain.
  • Clear an area in the center of the pan where the meat is and add the garlic. Stir and cook 1 minute. Add the salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning and stir together with the garlic and the meat.
  • Add the white wine and cook down until reduced to about half.
  • Add the tomatoes in their juice, pasta, and parsley. Reduce heat to low and cook 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and top with fresh basil. Serve immediately.
