Weeknight Turkey Bolognese 

This is for one of those busy weeknights. You only have 30 minutes start to finish with cleaning and everything!

It comes together in a jiffy and it holds over the next day really well. Serve it over pasta or in a sandwich.

Weeknight Turkey Bolognese

Ingredients (for 4):

  • 1 lb. Ground lean turkey
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive oil
  • ¼ white onion, chopped fine
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp. salt 
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 Fresno chile, sliced in thin rounds
  • 1-2 cups marinara sauce


  1. In a large saute pan, heat the oil. When hot, add chopped onion, chile, turkey and garlic. Sauté until turkey is no longer pink. Break up the turkey as it cooks with a spatula or wooden spoon. Add salt and some pepper as you cook it. 
  2. Once turkey is cooked through and no longer pink, add marinara sauce. Heat through until it bubbles for a couple minutes. 
  3. Serve over pasta, salad or sandwich.
