This has become a monday night favourite in our house. A simple and tasty bolognese made with Turkey Mince.

Ingredients

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion – chopped
2 garlic cloves – crushed
2 carrots – peeled and diced (or grated works well.)
500g (ish) pack of turkey mince( breast is better, but leg mince works well too.)
1 tin of chopped tomatoes (Tesco value range is good, just literally chopped tomatoes and nothing else!)
2 tablespoon size squrts of tomato purée

1 beef stock cube dissolved in 150ml of boiling water
100g of dried pasta per person- i usually halve this for the kids.

This sauce goes with anything, not just pasta. It’s great with some mashed sweed, sweet potato or rice.

Method

1. Prepare the carrots, onion and garlic.
2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan or wok.
3. Fry the onion, garlic and carrots and for 5 minutes, until soft.
4. Remove the vegetables and brown the turkey mince, breaking it up to ensure it’s cooked.
5. Add the veg back in and stir in the chopped tomatoes.
6. Mix the tomato purée with the beef stock and add to the pan. I usually use the chopped tomato tin to mix it up.
7. Simmer uncovered, on a low heat for 20 minutes.
8. Cook the pasta while the sauce is cooking.
9. You can serve it with grated cheese on top.
