The launch of Yum-o! as an organization was announced on my daytime television show. I taught a hard working mom this meal. For years, she and her husband had felt disappointment in their ability to get their daughters to eat a well-balanced diet. We cooked this rollover supper together: plenty of lean meat and vegetables in a rich pasta sauce over whole grain pasta, the leftovers of which became a simple soup and a spicy healthy chili. The mom felt so empowered that she cried – then I joined in.
Good food can be good for your soul, too.
Cook this recipe one night and serve with a green salad. Use the leftover sauce to make Turkey Tomato Soup and then Turkey Vegetable Chili the third night.
Serves 4, plus makes 5-6 cups leftover sauce
