Turkey Tomato Sauce

I know, with the warm summer weather you’d expect something more light and vibrant-looking. I get it and I agree, though I made a giant batch of this to portion and freeze for convenient meals. If you eat rice or pasta, it’s great mixed with either and they absorb some of the excess liquid for a beautiful dish. You could also thicken the sauce into a more standard texture by adding a can of tomato paste. Give it a try however you like. Either way, it’s a nutrient-dense dish that’ll make your taste buds sing.
