About this recipe: Try using turkey mince instead of beef mince for a change - it's lighter in flavour and healthier for you! I spice it up with fresh chilli pepper but it's up to you.


Serves: 8 

  • 1 kg minced turkey
  • 2 onions, minced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 carrots, finely diced or grated
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1 birds-eye chilli pepper (optional)
  • 250ml milk
  • 355ml white wine
  • 3 or 4 (400g) tins whole peeled tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon tomato puree
  • 450g spaghetti or penne pasta
  • 40g Parmesan cheese, grated
