The healthy secret of this rich, meaty sauce is the ground turkey. Put this fabulous-smelling pasta dish in front of your red meat eaters and feel good about yourself; they will love it, and you will be serving them a delicious, heart-healthy meal.
For best results, make it the day before serving. Let the sauce cool a bit then put it in the fridge - the turkey absorbs the sauce overnight and is darker, moister, and richer when reheated. Freezes great.
