This recipe for all natural sausage patties makes 12 patties. And is part of Dr Michelle Marcoux’s series What My Kids Eat – healthy recipes and meal planning from a naturopathic doctor mom!
½ lb ground turkey
½ pkge black bean spaghetti (about 100grams or so)
1 jar of pasta sauce with no added sugar (I use Simply Organic Naturals)
3 handfuls of spinach leaves
Optional: shredded cheddar or parmesan to top
Cook ground turkey in a skillet until cooked through and no longer pink.
While meat is cooking, heat pasta sauce in a pot until it starts to bubble.
Once the turkey is fully cooked, put it in a high speed blender with the spinach and pasta sauce and blend until smooth*.
Return to pot and keep warm while spaghetti is cooking. Cook spaghetti as per package directions, strain, and top with sauce and cheese if desired.

*My kids do not like chunks in their sauce, so I blend the meat in. If you prefer a chunky meat sauce, you can just blend the spinach into the pasta sauce, pour it back into the pot, and then stir the meat in and keep warm.
