Helping Hubbie: Homemade Meat Sauce

Gluten FreePaleo

To say this week was a little rough does not give you quite the full effect of what went down in the Casa. Cason started off the week with a little cough and by Wednesday his face was turning beet red during a coughing fit. I decided that enough was enough and took him to the doctor to get him checked out. The doctor checked his lungs, sounded great. (good news) Then she checked his right ear, clear, and then the left…… yup… ear infection. First one. Major bummer. No signs of it, no rubbing the ears or anything. I just took him in for a cough and came back with a little boy who had an ear infection and needs amoxicillin; meaning bring on the liquid poop and exploding diapers. (every mom’s dream) Thursday morning I wake up and of course, now I have a runny nose, cough, and a slight fever. AWESOME! So, all that to say we have not had the best week in this house. However, one good thing did come out of this week, I have decided to create a day of the week that will be dedicated to helping hubbies make dinner for the family during the week when momma ain’t feeling so good. It will be called… you guessed it… “Helping Hubbie”.

This Helping Hubbie post will be on a Homemade Meat Sauce. Here is how you help: you do the seasonings part  for the sauce. So, the meat part of it. Hubbie does the rest. The best part about this Homemade Meat Sauce is you can make your part of it earlier in the week so it is ready on the night you want it.

To get started, Over medium high heat, add coconut oil, carrots, and onions to large pot. Sauté until onions are translucent and carrots are soft, about 5-7 minutes. Add garlic to pot and sauté for 30 seconds. Then add basil, parsley, oregano, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.

Add ground turkey and sauté until you see no pink.

Let cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occassionally to let the goodnesses soak in.

Hubbie Directions: Heat meat mixture in large pot over medium heat. In the meantime, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Once meat mixture is warm add crushed tomatoes and fire roasted diced tomatoes, stir.

Cook sauce for 15 minutes so all ingredients are soaked together and sauce is warm. Add pasta to boiling water and cook till al dente. (will say on pasta box depending on which pasta you use)

Voila! Enjoy!
