Spicy Spaghetti


About a pound of spaghetti noodles
1/2 pound lean ground turkey
a little bit of olive oil
minced garlic (I use the stuff from the jar- it's faster and doesn't make my fingers smell)
salt and pepper
1 medium to large can of diced tomatoes
sriracha chili sauce
a little bit of sesame oil

In a large frying pan, add your oil and garlic. Cook on medium low, stirring frequently, until the garlic is golden brown. Add the ground turkey, salt and pepper. Stir well. Add as much sriracha chili sauce as you want (I used the very technical method of drawing a medium sized heart with the sauce. Do you draw pictures in your food too?). Cook the turkey thoroughly. Add the whole can of tomatoes, sauce and all. (If you'd like to thicken the sauce, you can add tomato sauce and/or cornstarch). Turn off the heat and add a little bit of sesame oil. I add it at the end b/c it seems to heat up quickly and burn. Serve over hot spaghetti noodles.

Here's a picture of the hot sauce:
