Chicken Bolognese

Ingredients

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.

Serves: 5

What You'll Need:
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and diced

  • 1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 pound (16 ounces) bow tie pasta
