All-In-One Pasta


This is so easy to make and quick. I like to serve my pasta in a big bowl with fresh green beans around the edges. 

1 lb. ground turkey

1 lg onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce

1 (6 oz) can tomato paste

3 cups of V-8 (you can use spicy if you like some heat)

1 cup water

1 t sugar

1 t dried oregano

1 (8 oz) pkg spaghetti or penne pasta

Cook ground turkey, onion and garlic in a large pot on the stove. Stir until meat crumbles and is no longer pink; drain well. Return beef mixture to pan. Stir in tomato sauce, tomato paste, tomato juice, water, salt, sugar, oregano and pepper; bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring often. Add uncooked pasta, stir, cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until pasta is tender, stirring often. Serve with grated Parmesan cheese and fresh basil. Freezes well.
