  Pasta 1 Pound, cooked, drained
  Ground turkey breast 1⁄2 Pound
  Garlic cloves 1 Medium, chopped fine
  Chopped fresh italian parsley 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Whole fennel seeds 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Dried oregano 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Crushed red pepper flakes 3⁄8 Teaspoon
  Freshly ground black pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Sugar 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Olive oil 1 Tablespoon
  Onion 1 Small, chopped fine
  Green bell pepper 1⁄2 Medium, cut into 1/4 by 1 inch strips
  Dry red wine 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Salt free whole tomatoes 16 Ounce (1 Can)
  Tomato paste 1 Tablespoon
  Sugar 1 Teaspoon
  Dried oregano 1 Teaspoon
  Dried thyme 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Dried marjoram 1⁄2 Teaspoon

In a mixing bowl, thoroughly combine all the ingredients for the turkey sausage.
Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
To make the sauce, in a large saucepan or skillet, heat the olive oil with the onion, garlic, and green pepper over moderate heat.
When the vegetables sizzle, raise the heat slightly and add the turkey sausage.
Saute it stirring with a wooden spoon and breaking up the meat into chunks about 1/2 inch across, until it begins to brown, about 5 minutes.
Add the wine and stir and scrape well to deglaze the pan.
Add the tomatoes, breaking them up with your hands, and stir in the remaining ingredients.
Simmer the sauce until it is thick but still slightly liquid, about 25 minutes.
Spoon over cooked pasta.
