Ingredients

  • 1

    pound fresh mushrooms (or 3 oz dried mushrooms)

  • 4

    garlic cloves chopped

  • 2

    tablespoons olive oil

  • 1

    pound ground turkey or beef

  • 1

    teaspoon chopped fresh mint leaves (optional)

  • 1/2

    teaspoon dried rosemary

  • 1/4

    teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1/4

    teaspoon dried thyme

  • 1

    can tomato sauce - (15 oz)

  • Salt to taste

  • Freshly-ground black pepper to taste

  • 1/2

    cup dry red wine or more

Directions

If using fresh mushrooms, cut into chunks; if using dried ones, soak them in hot water to cover for about 15 minutes, squeeze dry, and chop. Save the soaking liquid for the sauce. In a large sauté pan or skillet, sauté the mushrooms and garlic for 7 minutes in the olive oil. Remove the mushrooms and garlic with a slotted spoon. Add the turkey or beef and cook for another 3 minutes, crumbling the meat as it cooks. Add the mint, rosemary, oregano, thyme, tomato sauce, salt, pepper, red wine, mushroom-garlic mixture, and the soaking liquid from the dried mushrooms if you have it. Cover and simmer for 1 hour. If you want a richer flavor, add more wine during the last 10 minutes of cooking. This recipe yields 4 cups.
