Spicy Turkey Bolognese

Spicy Turkey Bolognese

I love this recipe so much. I remember when I first came up with this recipe, it was just me and my dad because my mom and sister were gone. I was trying out all these new recipes and this one came up because I wanted something spicy, flavorful, and also using some lean meat. So, I mixed the 2 together and the combination was DELICIOUS! Pretty sure we ate the whole pan and a pound of pasta to go with it.

The second time I made this recipe was with my boyfriend. I remembered how much I loved it and decided to recreate it. Again, ate the whole pot and almost a pound of pasta.

While I have been vegan for about 2 months now, I do find myself craving this spicy flavor combination here and there. If I could have 1 non-vegan cheat meal, I might consider making this recipe again because it’s THAT. GOOD. Not to mention, it comes together in about 20 minutes. While you are making the Bolognese, make your pasta and they will be done at about the same time.

This is also a great make ahead or make in batches recipe as it can be kept in the fridge easily, then heated up quickly right before dinner!
