  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil or grapeseed oil
  • 1 pound ground lean turkey
  • 1 tablespoon of rice wine vinegar citrus champagne vinegar or very light white wine vinegar; or lemon juice
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1 teaspoon ground thyme
  • 1 carrot peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 celery stalk finely chopped
  • ½ cup lima beans
  • 3 cups marinara sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon Noubess Hot and Spicy Original Sauce
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 pound spaghetti or any other type of pasta noodle
  • Grated Parmesan optional


  • Heat the oil in a heavy large frying pan over medium heat. Add turkey and cook while stirring and breaking down the lumps. Once the meat starts to cook, add vinegar or lemon juice and continue to cook while stirring. When the meat has turned brown, add the onion garlic, sage, and thyme and continue to cook for about 5 minutes. Add the carrot, celery, lima beans and cook until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Add the marinara sauce. Decrease the heat to medium-low and simmer gently for 25 - 30 minutes to allow the flavors to blend, stirring often. Season the sauce, to taste, with the hot sauce, salt and pepper.
  • Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti in a large pot of boiling salted water or according to the instructions on the packaging. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid. Add the pasta to the sauce and toss to coat, adding enough reserved cooking liquid to moisten as needed. Cook the sauce with the pasta for about 5 minutes before serving. Serve with the grated cheese if preferred.


Ground turkey can be substitute for ground lamb or ground beef. Cooking time will vary and spices must be adjusted.
