Dora's baked spaghetti


2 teaspoons olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 small green bell pepper, chopped
1 (8-ounce) package mushrooms, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 (14-ounce) can reduced-sodium tomato sauce
1 (14-ounce) can reduced-sodium diced tomatoes
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 small bay leaves
8 ounces lean ground turkey breast (99% fat-free)
8 ounces lean ground chicken breast
1 (13.25‑ounce) package reduced-carbohydrate spaghetti, such as Dreamfield’s
3/4 cup grated reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese
3/4 cup grated reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese


Heat oil in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion, bell pepper and mushrooms; sauté until lightly browned, 8 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook 30 seconds more. Add tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, water, parsley, Italian seasoning, sugar, garlic powder, pepper and bay leaves. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, covered, 1 hour.

Spray large nonstick skillet with nonstick spray. Crumble in turkey and chicken; cook over medium-high heat until no longer pink. Add to sauce with slotted spoon and simmer 5 minutes. Remove and discard bay leaves.

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350°F. Cook pasta according to package directions.

Cover bottom of 13x9-inch baking dish with 1/3 of sauce. Add 1/2 the pasta; sprinkle with 1/2 the cheeses. Top with another layer of sauce and pasta, then spread with the remaining sauce. Cover with foil and bake until bubbly, 25-30 minutes; remove foil and sprinkle with remaining cheeses. Bake until cheese melts, 5-10 minutes more.
