Turkey Spaghetti Sauce with Beef Flavor & Turkey Lasagna

Showing turkey spaghetti sauce in saucepan

My favorite spaghetti sauce with meat (bolognese) is this recipe, adapted from my Sicilian grandmother’s recipe, which contains beef stew meat, Italian sausage, and ground sirloin. However, as you get older or wish to lose weight, ground turkey is healthier for you. I finally figured out how to make this naturally gluten free turkey spaghetti sauce taste like my old beef one, full of flavor. Enjoy!

Gluten Free Sun-Dried Tomato Bread Recipe

Gluten Free Sun Dried Tomato Bread with Parmesan

I just had to create a gluten free sun-dried tomato bread with some Parmesan cheese. I love creating recipes that contain food to which I’m allergic, tomatoes in this case. I enjoy living vicariously through my husband’s meals. He thoroughly enjoyed this bread. He said that he could taste the Parmesan but didn’t recognize the sun-dried tomatoes. He did, however, note that whatever it was, was a little sweet. So, obviously the sun-dried tomatoes are not overpowering, but add just the right something to this lovely bread. I’m thinking it would make an awesome grilled cheese sandwich. He agreedĀ but had his first piece as soon as I sliced the loaf along with some margarine.
