Ground turkey is an excellent alternative to ground beef or Italian sausage in spaghetti sauce. What I found interesting about this recipe was the addition of chicken broth and butter in the sauce. I was a little unsure of what to think about this recipe, but the sauce turned out to be extremely delicious and I will definitely make it again. You can double the recipe if you want to freeze some or make a large batch. You can also adjust the seasonings to your taste. This makes a great dinner for any night of the week. Enjoy.
