At least once a week we have one of those crazy, busy days that ends in a super, busy night. I’m not one to always revert to drive through food or ordering pizza too often, and my kids love homemade leftovers in their lunch boxes. So I’m always looking for something quick with items I already have in the pantry. Like many families an easy spaghetti night is usually in order, but that can also get boring and repetitive. So I try to change it up once in a while with a green or red pesto, vodka sauce…. something. In the last year our family has made a lot of changes in our diet, one being switching ground beef with ground turkey. So I always have a pound of ground turkey in the freezer. I did a quick search for pasta meals with turkey and Delish did not disappoint with their Ground Turkey Bolognese recipe!🍝
It’s funny that with all of the different pastas and sauces I’ve made, I’ve never done a Bolognese with veggies before. I think the thought of the carrots and celery in my sauce was always a little crazy to me. But I followed this recipe exactly, except that I had to use dry parsley because I didn’t have any fresh. I also used an open bottle of dry white wine in the sauce and poured a tad more than half a cup.
This was a definite dinner success for my family. I ate early with my girls since the boys were at baseball, and they loved it . I had a late meeting so my husband and son reheated and ate later. Whenever I’m leaving a meal for my husband or a babysitter to heat up, I like it to be an easy one dish meal. Save them the work of having a bunch of different things to reheat. Everyone seemed to love it and the little ones may not of even noticed all the veggies that were snuck in there!
