Linguine with Classic Meat Sauce

I made this when my mom was in Texas.  We love Italian food and this was so easy to whip up after a day of shopping. Serve it with a salad and garlic bread, super easy!I don't have a picture....oops....

1 pound of ground turkey, chuck or sirloin*I always use turkey*
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 large shallot, minced
red wine*any kind*
28 ounce can of crushed tomatoes
15 ounces of tomato sauce
salt and pepper to taste
pinch of red pepper flakes
linguine noodles, cooked and drained
fresh basil for the top, if you choose
Parmesan cheese

Heat the olive oil in a large pan over med-hi heat.  Cook the shallots until clear and add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.  Add the meat until browned, season with salt and pepper and red pepper flakes.  Add the tomato sauce and crushed tomatoes and a splash of red wine. Cover and turn heat to low and simmer for 15-20 minutes at least. Pour sauce over the noodles and sprinkle parmesan cheese and basil over the top. Enjoy~
