Turkey isn't just for Thanksgiving. Let it go Italian for this healthy, meaty spaghetti.

Yield: 6 servings
Serving size: 5 oz of sauce with 9 oz of cooked spaghetti

1 lb ground turkey, lean
1 can (28 oz) tomatoes, cut up
1 cup green pepper, finely chopped
1 cup onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp dried oregano, crushed
1 tsp black pepper
1 lb spaghetti, uncooked
nonstick cooking spray, as needed

1. Coat large skillet with nonstick spray. Preheat over high heat.

2. Add turkey and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Drain and discard fat.

3. Stir in tomatoes with juice, green pepper, onion, garlic, oregano, and black pepper. Bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer covered for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove cover and simmer for added 15 minutes. (For creamier sauce, give sauce a whirl in blender or food processor.)

4. Meanwhile, cook spaghetti in unsalted water. Drain well.

5. Serve sauce over spaghetti.
