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.

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

  1. 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.
  2. Add remaining ingredients except pasta; cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions; drain. Serve sauce over pasta.

I make this with lean ground antibiotic free turkey. Add some red wine for an extra layer of flavor.

This Recipe was very good and easy to make

Made this last night for my family and they loved it!! And for those who want to figure out the Weight Watchers points go to their website and enter all of the info from the recipe, takes some extra time, but it works!!

I agree that the nutritional information would be most helpful because I'm trying to follow Weight Watchers.

I second that thought! Nutritional information would be very helpful in maintaining my weight lose plan!

I would love to know the serving size, the calories and nutritional information on Mr.Food recipes

Due the math like the rest of us! Seriously, this gets really old.

I'll second that, there are other web site with nutritional information =..=
