Roasted Garlic Italian San Marzano Tomato Sauce with shredded Turkey:

Hi, this is Chance ( still having issues logging in as myself ), and here is a flavorful recipe for you all to try.

Roasted Garlic Italian San Marzano Tomato Sauce with shredded Turkey:

*Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 2 tbsp
* Garlic, 10 cloves
* Onions, raw, 1 cup, chopped
* Turkey Breast, 93% lean, 24 oz
* Fresh Oregano, chopped, 3 tbsp
* Fresh Basil, 2 tbsp
* Bay leaf, whole (remove before serving)
* Parsley, dried, 1 tbsp
*Hunt's Tomato Sauce, no salt added, 2 cup
*Cento canned San Marzano whole Tomatoes 1 / 24 oz. can

First cover the 10 cloves of garlic with EVOO in a pot and place in oven until golden color (remove garlic from oil, save the oil, you can use this to cook something else or dip gluten free bread in, roasted garlic oil)
Cook turkey breast through, not too long it will dry out. After turkey is cooked, shred it.

heat onion in extra virgin olive oil until onions are nearly translucent.
Add the rest of the ingredients to the pan with the onions cook sauce thoroughly, the longer it simmers, the more flavor it will emit. If too thick add some water.

Serve over gluten free pasta.

I often add more italian seasoning, or more tomato sauce or paste. It just depends on taste.

Ok...I have three questions because I am going to make this...

1. don't laugh...but when you say cook the turkey you mean in the oven? unclear there

2. If you have chicken breasts can you replace the turkey with chicken?

3.Whats a good gluten free pasta you can recommend...I don't have to eat gluten free but I know it is hard to find good ones.

1. Many ways to cook it, however,roasting it in the oven is always best.

2.You can most certainly sub chicken for turkey.

3.De Pumas is really good, may be a little pricey, Mother Earth in Poughkeepsie have a few, I buy mine on line through De Puma's.

I made this for dinner tonight....and I loved it!!! Everyone was happy and cleaned their plates!! It was super easy and super yummy! Thank you Chance!!

PS - I swapped out the turkey for chicken and maybe smudged a bit on exact ingredients and it came out fantastic.
