Spaghetti with a Twist

A while back my roommate made her spaghetti sauce the "Ghanian way" and I was amazed at how a few modifications really made the meal. I tried my own version the other night and it was fabulous. Turkey is a wonderful thing, I must say: leaner and more tender in my opinion. than ground beef.

First saute about one small onion, finely chopped. Then add 1 pound of ground turkey and cook until the turkey is almost cooked through. I don't mush the turkey into tiny pieces: some people are really particular about having the same consistency for their sauce, but I personally keep the chunks different sizes because I find the larger ones to be more tender...

In a saucepan add 1 jar of your favorite tomato sauce, seasoned with pepper, garlic powder, and Cayenne pepper.

Add the turkey/onions and cook for about 20 minutes on low heat.

Make your pasta and serve -this keeps for about a week in the fridge, too!
