I usually make my meat sauce (or Bolognese sauce, if you prefer) with ground beef; my Slow Cooker Bolognese Sauce is a recipe that I've made so many times over the years!
But switching the beef for turkey can make a nice change – and is often cheaper! I often find that I need to season turkey a little more than I would have to season beef – so make sure you taste test for seasoning before you serve.
This recipe is great for cooking for the whole family!
How to Make Low Carb Turkey Meat Sauce
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet (I love my cast iron pan!) and add the ground turkey. Cook for five minutes or until the meat is browned all over.
Add canned tomato sauce (not ketchup!), Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, and dried orgeano. Stir well, and cook over a medium heat for 15-20 minutes until the liquid has reduced and a sauce has formed.
Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper as necessary.
So what can you serve with this sauce? There are so many options! My top choices are zoodles, shirataki noodles, low carb pasta – you can see the brand that I use in my Low Carb Pasta Alfredo recipe, Palmini, in a low carb tortilla, or add some to a lettuce wrap – which are particularly good with leftovers!
