Ingredients
  1. 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  2. 1 small onion diced
  3. 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  4. 1.5 pound ground turkey
  5. 1 pound Italian sausage (optional)
  6. 2 (28 ounce) cans of diced tomatoes
  7. 1 (6 ounce) can of tomato paste
  8. 1/2 to 1 cup red wine (I used Frontera Carmenere. Even if you don't normally drink wine, I have found that it cuts through the acidity of the tomatoes. As I always say, don't use a wine you wouldn't drink! Use a yummy wine, like this Frontera Carmenere!)
  9. 1 teaspoon Italian seasonings
  10. 1 package egg noodles, cooked and drained
  11. 1 cup ricotta cheese
  12. 1 cup fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
  13. 1/2 cup freshly grated/chopped Parmesan or Parmigiano-Reggianio
  14. Freshly torn basil, for topping
Instructions
  1. Cook the onion in a large skillet in olive oil, then add the garlic, ground turkey and Italian Sausage, if using, cooking all together. Add diced tomatoes, tomato paste and 1/2 cup to 1 cup red wine; then add the Italian seasoning. Stir well. Add egg noodles and stir into the turkey and tomato mixture. Dollop the ricotta on top of the cooked mixture. Then add the mozzarella and parmesan. Cover and let cook for just a couple of minutes, to melt the cheese. Stir gently, then top with freshly torn basil leaves, then serve.
Notes
  1. Enjoy with Frontera Carmenere!
