Bolognese Sauce With Ground Turkey


Bolognese Sauce With Ground Turkey


1 tablespoon olive oil
1 lb ground turkey
1.5 cup carrots minced finely
2 tablespoons garlic minced finely
1 cup onion minced finely
1 cup celery minced finely
56 oz cans crushed tomatoes (2 28 oz cans)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
¼ cup fresh basil chopped finely
¼ cup fresh parsley chopped finely


In a large pot, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil. Brown ground turkey for 5-7 minutes. When fully cooked, remove from pan and set aside, reserving the juices/grease
Add carrots, garlic, onion and celery. Saute until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes.
Add cooked ground turkey back to the pan, along with tomatoes, spices + herbs.
Stir to combine, and bring to a boil over high heat.
Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour, uncovered, on medium- low heat, stirring every few minutes.
After 1 hour you can serve this sauce, but it’s best when simmered on low heat for 6-8 hours. This allows the flavors to come together and for the meat to be super tender.
