Take Back the Kitchen: Alma’s Friend Hilda’s Turkey Meat Sauce

Simple is always best, especially when it is delicious and healthy! This is a wonderful recipe that my friend Hilda gave me years ago. She actually brought the sauce to my house after I had surgery and my family of six ate it for days by itself as well as with spaghetti. If it’s too much for your crowd, freeze some for later and enjoy!
Hilda’s Turkey Meat Sauce
2 lbs. ground beef or turkey
1 onion, peeled and chopped
2 cloves garlic
1 28 oz. can of plum tomatoes
1 15 oz cans of tomato sauce
2 small cans of tomato paste
2 tsp salt (more to taste)
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
A few drops of Tabasco
2 Tablespoons dried Oregano
2 Tablespoons dried Basil
1 Bay leaf
About 1-2 TBS olive oil for cooking
In a large sauce pan, saute chopped onion and garlic cloves in olive oil until golden
Add meat and brown (If using turkey only you’ll need some extra olive oil)
Add all of the rest of the ingredients and mix well
Cook, covered on low-medium heat (enough so that it bubbles) for 1 hour, stirring every so often.
