Review This Recipe
This was a good sauce, and an excellent way to get my child to eat carrots, which blend in seamlessly! This sauce freezes well too.
Tasty & Healthy!
Thick, savory... satisfying. My family was happy to have a "new" bolognese sauce, after making it with ground turkey and red peppers for a long time. This recipe is a winner! We'll have it again and again. The veggies give it that extra healthy boost! I doubled this recipe and glad I did because it was so good we needed plenty!
This is an excellant sauce..My picky crew asked for more...That says a lot to me!
