  • 2 onions, coarsely chopped
  • 1 can (4 oz.) sliced mushrooms, drained

  1. Separate turkey wings at the joints. Wash and pat dry.
  2. Heat oil in heavy Dutch oven or deep heavy pot. Add garlic. Brown wings one at a time over high heat. Add water and onion. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Simmer for 1-1½ hours or until wings are very tender.
  3. Remove wings to another dish. Boil liquid until reduced to 1 cup. Return wings to pot. Add mushrooms, tomatoes, tomato sauce and seasonings. Simmer, uncovered, 15-30 minutes longer.
  4. Serve over hot spaghetti or noodles, sprinkling each serving with Parmesan cheese, if you wish.
You may substitute turkey legs for the wings.
