I’m a sucker for any bolognese recipes. It’s lifted from my favourite cookbook of 2010, Leon 2. The appeal of this one is in the turkey mince, both healthy and cheap. It’s never going to replace ‘proper’ bolognese but it’s dead easy, very tasty and freezes like a dream. Give it a try.
1 onion, finely diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
500g turkey mince
250g mushrooms, sliced
2 tins of tomatoes
Big glass of white wine
500ml chicken stock
- In a large casserole pan, fry some onion in a little oil. When tender add the garlic and turkey and fry until browned.
- Add the mushrooms, fry for a minute then add the tomatoes, wine and stock. Pop the lid on and simmer gently for an hour and a half.
- When it’s ready, cook the spaghetti according to the packet instructions. Toss with the mince mix and grate over some fresh parmesan to serve.
