Our version of Chicken Bolognese is a lighter twist on the traditional Italian-style Bolognese sauce. Made with ground chicken and served over heart-healthy whole grain pasta, it tastes just as rich and hearty as the original.
Cooking Time: 30 min
What You'll Need:
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound ground chicken
1 large carrot, peeled and diced
1 celery stalk, diced
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 pound (16 ounces) bow tie pasta
What To Do:
In a large pot over medium-high heat, heat oil; brown chicken 5 to 6 minutes. Add carrot, celery, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper; cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until onion is tender, stirring occasionally.
Add remaining ingredients except pasta; cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions; drain. Serve sauce over pasta.
