Healthy Recipes: Natalie Hodson's 30-Minute Spaghetti

Natalie Hodson's flavorful spaghetti sauce is way better (and healthier!) than anything store-bought. It's quick and easy, to boot.

Don't be intimidated! Making your own spaghetti sauce saves you money, calories, sugar and sodium. Ragu has nothing on this family recipe!


  1. In a large saucepan, sauté olive oil, onions, garlic and mushrooms on medium heat.
  2. When onions are transparent, add diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, parsley, basil, oregano and black pepper.
  3. Set heat to low and allow sauce to simmer, stirring occasionally.
  4. In a separate skillet, season the ground turkey and cook on medium heat until thoroughly browned. (Drain any fat that may appear in the skillet).
  5. When turkey is done, add to sauce and stir.
  6. Serve sauce over whole wheat noodles, Ezekiel toast or spaghetti squash.
