Quick Turkey Ragu: Delicious Healthy Meat Sauce Recipe

Ingredients

  • For the Ragu:
  • 2 tablespoons good quality extra virgin olive oil
  • 2–3 shallots, peeled and finely chopped (1/4 cup)
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped (1 tablespoon)
  • 1½ pounds ground turkey. I have a slight preference for dark meat. (ground beef or lamb are great too!)
  • 1 cup of good dry red wine. Good choices are: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Shiraz, or Zinfandel.
  • 4 cups of your favorite marinara sauce such as Rao’s, or easy homemade tomato sauce (see recipe below)
  • For The Homemade Tomato Sauce (if using)
  • 1/4 cup of good quality extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion, peeled and finely chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 large garlic cloves, finely minced (1 tablespoon)
  • 1 28-ounce can of good quality tomato puree (I use Muir Glen Organic or San Marzano)
  • 4 tablespoons good quality tomato paste (half of a 6-ounce can)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • Optional Garnishes:
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • Freshly grated parmesan cheese (I recommend Parmigiana Reggiano)
  • Fresh basil leaves, slivered or chopped
