Chicken/Turkey Bolognese

Chicken/Turkey Bolognese

This meal was super yummy and great as leftovers too!  David had bought some chicken chorizo that was antibiotic/hormone free, organic, etc etc or I’m not so sure I would have been thrilled on chorizo, but it was delicious!

chorizo bolognese


  • 1/2 package ground turkey (the one in the rolls)
  • 1 package ground chicken chorizo
  • 3 cups veggie pasta
  • 1/2 can tomato paste (no sodium added)
  • 1/3 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1, 2 oz can green chiles (the can with the least amount of sodium)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 stalk celery, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup cilantro


Saute the chicken chorizo and the turkey together in a pan over medium heat (you don’t need any oil, but if your pan is a bit dry, add a touch of water!).  Once the mixture starts to brown, add the tomato paste, onion, green chiles, and garlic.  Turn the heat to low and allow to simmer for 10-20 minutes (the longer the better, but as long as the meat is cooked all the way through, you are good!).

Meanwhile, boil a pot of water and add the veggie pasta.  Once the pasta is soft, drain the pasta and mix it into the meat/veggie mixture.  Allow the whole concoction to simmer on low for 2-3 minutes and then serve with a cilantro garnish!
