TURKEY BOLOGNESE WITH PENNE PASTA

TURKEY BOLOGNESE WITH PENNE PASTA
DINNER AT HOME

Costco had four packets of Fresh Ground Turkey at a great price.  I was thinking of trying to reduce the amount of fat in our diet so I bought the packages and substituted Ground Turkey for a Bolognese Sauce where I usually use Ground Beef, Pork and Sausage.  Once again I went for the Bertolli Tomato and Basil Sauce because it delivers great flavor and a great price.  We always keep several bottles of Bertolli in the pantry.  It is one of my favorite sauces for pasta.  I just used what we had in the refrigerator and pantry for this recipe.  One onion, several cloves of garlic, diced carrots, bell pepper and some oregano leaves.  I cooked the vegetables in about a tablespoon of olive oil and then deglazed with white wine.  Added a pinch of crushed red pepper for a bit of heat too.  After cooking and seasoning the Ground Turkey I mixed the vegetables and the meat and then added two jars of Bertolli sauce.  Simmered and then added some steamed broccoli because we had a large bag of it in the fridge.  This recipe was quick, easy and very delicious.  Low fat too!
