Recipe: Turkey Bolognese

This is such a simple sauce but it’s absolutely delicious. Served with a wide noodle to pick up all those nice chunks of turkey (or chicken or beef or whatever ground meat you end up using) and tomato there’s really something truly delicious about taking good food and making a good meal. You can add some grated Parmesan on top but I found that if seasoned right, the cheese just didn’t have much to add so it’s all about your taste. You can add in more spices or herbs if you want but I found the perfectly paired down flavors packed a nice punch and with just salt and pepper you’re able to really taste the underlying garlic, olive oil, and balsamic. Sometimes life is better when it’s simple.
