  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil; cook sausage in the boiling water until partially cooked, about 5 minutes. Remove sausage from water and slice.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir ground turkey, onion, and garlic in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease. Stir sausage, tomato sauce, chopped tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar, oregano, basil, and parsley into ground turkey; bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until flavors have blended and sausage is fully cooked, about 1 hour.
  3. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain and transfer spaghetti to a serving bowl; top with sauce. Toss to coat.

  • Cook's Note:
  • Feel free to add more garlic, and ground beef works well also instead of ground turkey. Also be sure not to cook the sausage all the way, as it will cook in the sauce, adding more flavor to it as it simmers.

My mom is in the hospital and has not been eating. Spaghetti is her favorite meal so I took her some to get her to eat and she cleaned two plates! I took the tip of melting the cheese on top and OMGosh it was so good. Otherwise I didn't change a thing. Simple to make and very very tasty!

After boiling and slicing the sausage, I did throw it into the skillet (after draining the ground turkey) with the onions and garlic to brown it up a bit. I ended up mixing the cooked pasta with the sauce, then dumped it into a 9x13 baking dish and topped it with shredded mozzerella and a little parmesan cheese and baked it until the cheese melted. The family really liked it--all three boys went back for seconds. NOTE: This warmed the next day made EXCELLENT spaghetti sandwiches.
