A Twist on Bolognese
I am a sucker for a really good bolognese, my favorite by far is from Sirenas Ristorante in Long Branch! Oh my, it is incredible!!! I've also had some bad meat sauce too and no one wants that! Bolognese should be flavorful beyond a basic tomato sauce and the meat tender.
I had some ground turkey and thought i'd try to make a not so classic bolognese. Its filled with veggies and lean meat and oh so flavorful! Simmered for 2 hours, the meat and veggies are perfectly tender and all the flavors have melded into the sauce. The flavors reminded me of chicken cacciatore and I love that dish! This is a great twist on a classic! Make is perfect by serving over fresh pasta. I know fresh pasta is a a couple more dollars more then dry but it really is worth it!
I used my trusty Le Creuset for this one, I do for anything that has to simmer for a while. It heats wonderfully and cooks evenly.... I love my dutch oven! A little side note, this is one of those recipes that you want to have all the veggies prepped.
