Spaghetti with Green Olive Pasta Sauce

My dearest husband, Beemer Man, hates leftovers. There are only 2 things that he eats leftover.

Turkey/Chicken Pot Pies
Leftover Olive Spaghetti Sauce

And so here's my recipe (and seriously, it's the easiest, I shit you not):

Green Olive Pasta Sauce

3/4 cup chopped pitted green olives, you can use the cheap ones, they're fine too!
1 can tomato sauce
1/2 cup red wine (that you're drinking while you're cooking)
1 small onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
Olive oil for the pan
1/3 lb ground turkey or lean ground beef, either works

Soften the onions in a pan on medium heat. Cook them until clear, then add the garlic, meat and olives. Saute until there's no pink left in the meat.

Add the red wine, tomato sauce and 1 large ladle of pasta cooking water. Simmer for 10 - 15 minutes, covered while your spaghetti cooks. (I use angel hair pasta because it reheats well).

This makes enough for 4 servings.
