I’ve always made my bolognese from scratch, it works out a lot cheaper and it tastes so much better. This Clean Eating Turkey Bolognese is twice as healthy with the substitution of beef mince to lean turkey mince. It’s light and tasty and lets face it, it’s bolognese! – Everyone will love it!
If you haven’t tried turkey mince yet, you must! It’s the perfect Clean Eating lean (animal) protein and it’s pretty inexpensive too. I like to use turkey breast mince when I’m making bolognese or chilli, but if I make turkey burgers or meatballs I usually use leg/thigh mince.
