  • 500 g turkey breast mince
  • 400 g tinned chopped tomatoes
  • 250 g passata
  • 70 g double concentrate tomato puree
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed
  • 2 tsp vegetable bouillon
  • 1 tbsp gluten free Worcester sauce
  • 1 tbsp virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

To serve

  • 300 g gluten free pasta
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Parmesan shavings


  1. Add the olive oil to a large pan on a low heat. Add the onions, garlic, dried basil and dried oregano and fry for 2-3 minutes gently.

  2. Add the turkey mince, turn the heat up to medium/high and fry until starting to brown. You'll need to stir this well to ensure the mince is broken up and doesn't clump.

  3. Add the chopped tomatoes, passata, tomato puree, Worcester sauce and Bouillon to the pan. Stir well, bring to the boil and then turn the heat down to a gentle simmer. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Leave to simmer gently while you cook the pasta.

  4. Add the gluten free pasta to salted, boiling water and cook as per the instructions - usually 10-12 minutes. Once cooked, drain and set aside.

  5. Remove the turkey from the heat. Serve the pasta into bowls and divide the sauce equally between servings. Top with ripped fresh basil leaves and grated parmesan.
