Turkey bolognese is a great left over turkey dish after the holidays. I always make it up, and believe me, it’s an instant hit. Your family and friends will love it.
There are few tips to making this tasty dish. First. You can use white or dark meat. Personally, I like a combination of both. I like to include onions, garlic, carrots, and celery, but you can use the vegetables of your choice. The marinara sauce really adds a nice touch. If you have more turkey, add more sauce, of course. Spaghetti sauce can be used as well. I find it just isn’t as nice. Give it a try and let us know what you think.
