My son, Zachary, asked after school today if we were having chicken again tonight. I told I made something he’s going to really like, a new pasta dish with a homemade Crockpot Turkey Spaghetti Sauce. It’s so easy! Start browning the ground turkey with Italian seasoning. Then, add the remaining ingredients. Set the timer on your crockpot for 4 or 7 hours (depending on when you’ll be home) and that is it. I was so excited to use the new Organic Hunts Diced Tomatoes, Sauce and Tomato paste. 43% of consumers are trying to include organic foods in their diets, and Hunts does a great job creating tomatoes with fantastic flavors. Hunts cans each tomato for their sauces and whole and diced tomatoes within hours of picking them from the field. This flash steaming process is only done with water so these are products are super fresh! This recipe can also be made with ground beef, chicken or pork. Toss with your favorite pasta; serve with a salad and call everyone to the table for dinner.
