“An adaptation I've come up with that makes for the perfect companion to your choice of noodles. This is healthy, a little spicy, and absolutely delicious - its a whole new concept to the flavor of pasta sauce that you are going to love! Afterthought: DH just started weight watchers and this recipe using 0 point butter and calculating 1 cup of cooked vermicelli noodles per serving is only 10 points per serving.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown turkey in large pot. Drain and set aside (I usually just keep mine sitting in the colander :-).
  2. Melt the butter in the pot (or heat the olive oil, whichever you choose to use).
  3. Add the mushrooms, zucchini, jalapeno, onion, and red pepper. Add the taragon, basil, and garlic powder. Saute vegetables till tender.
  4. Add tomatoes, olives, and wine. Return turkey to pot.
  5. Simmer 15 minutes, let the aroma rouse your inner stomach growl, and serve over your favorite noodles!
