First things first, you want the sauce to be chunky, you're not trying to imitate a smooth tomato sauce. Doing it the "traditional" way won't make sense!
This first photo is the base. Ground turkey, zucchini, cauliflower, roma tomato, onion, bell pepper AND broccoli! If you're going to do it...do it BIG!
I season my sauce according to taste. Typically I'll use garlic powder, onion powder, basil, Italian seasoning, black pepper and salt. It always tastes best if you season the meat while you're browning it.
To my base I add a can of tomato paste and a can of diced tomatoes. I fill the diced tomatoes can twice with water and add it to the skillet. Stir it up and let it simmer! The tomato paste will begin to thicken the sauce.
Choose the veggies you love and get to work! This dish is one of my girl's favorites!
