Happy National Spaghetti Day




Did you know today is National Spaghetti Day

I had no idea it existed and believe me, now that I know I plan to celebrate with gusto. Keeping that in mind though, I’m not in the mood to cook too much tonight so I’m throwing together a quick batch of meat sauce and serving it with the new vegan (allergy safe) Parmesan SHREDS I found at my local Whole Foods.

Spaghetti with Meat Sauce
1 package ground turkey
2 garlic cloves - diced
1 red onion – chopped
Olive oil
Salt & pepper
1 jar of your favorite red sauce
Red wine (for sauce & consuming of course)
Your favorite Italian herbs: basil, oregano, thyme
1 package of your favorite pasta – cooked al dente



  • Heat oil in a large skillet on high until hot and add ground turkey
  • Cook until cooked through – season with salt & pepper to taste
  • Remove from pan, drain on paper towel lined tray
  • Add more oil to pan, cook onion & garlic until tender – add drained ground turkey back into pan and combine
  • Add jar of spaghetti sauce
  • Add ½ - 1 cup red wine, mix to combine
  • Add herbs if you like, mix to combine
  • Put heat on simmer and cover with lid
  • Bring a large pot of water to boil on high heat
  • Add pasta once water is boiling
  • Wait until water comes back to a boil, then start timing the cooking – normally 9 minutes will yield al dente pasta
  • Drain pasta
  • Place in bowls, top with sauce and vegan Parmesan shreds
