In a large frying pan over medium heat, cook the turkey until browned.
Stir in the tomatoes, garlic, pasta sauce, sugar and basil and then simmer for about 20 minutes.
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to the boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente and then drain. Combine the pasta and turkey mixture; toss and serve.
We're trying to eat less red meat, so thought i'd try turkey mince, and this recipe converted us all! Really hearty and satisfying, you don't even really think about it being turkey. Will make again, thanks! - 11 Dec 2012
