Talk about yum-o, lick the bowl clean this is so good!!

Thanks to a family friend, Kipper Lackey for sharing this recipe with me years ago. I am re-posting since now I have a pic and it is so worth sharing again! ENJOY

I have shared this with many of my friends, all who have raved. It’s sort of a soup, a stew & a pasta. It is just yummy! Perfect for a cool fall day!

Lackey’s Ragu:

2 Tb olive oil

1 lg onion, diced

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 lb ground turkey

3-4 Italian sausage, casings removed (I use 2 hot, 2 sweet)

2~ 14 1/2 oz cans tomatoes in juice with Italian spices

2~ 14 oz cans chicken broth

1 can Cannellini/white beans, drained

2 t oregano

2 t basil

1/4 t crushed red pepper

1/2 c small elbow macaroni

1~ 6 oz bag FRESH baby spinach

1/3 c grated Romano cheese

Heat oil, add onions & garlic. Saute 6 mins add ground turkey & sausage crumbles. Brown. (Put in warm crockpot and) Add tomatoes w/ juice, broth, spices, (I waited to add beans until 2 hrs prior to eating) beans and simmer at least 20 min. Add pasta cook 12-14 mins. (if using crockpot pasta may need a little longer) Add spinach & cook apx 3 mins (just before serving) Season with salt & pepper and serve with fresh grated cheese. (again, if using slow cooker… cook on low all day and add spinach apx 10mins before serving.) Yummy!!

Please note: I have adapted this for my CROCKPOT~ See notes in RED!
