Turkey Bolognese

Recipe by Stacey Sweet

Not your typical bolognese sauce! It makes 1 quart and the turkey can easily be replaced by ground beef. Stacey

Unique and tasty recipe! The fennel seeds really complement the turkey. We also liked that it wasn't too tomatoey (no tomato sauce or paste)and the canned tomatoes gave it just the right amount of tomato flavor/texture. I used dried parsley.
