Now, have we ever tried to act like we’re professional chefs or maestros in the kitchen? No, we leave that to our tastemakers. What we can do though are the basics, ones we all know and love (and we think we do them pretty well). After all, potatoes never get old, right?
It’s time for the essentials. One thing we’re always looking for is easy dinner recipes. While we do love to (attempt to) cook large, intricate meals, it’s typically not realistic during a busy work week. This turkey bolognese might be the easiest and quickest dinner recipe we know (seriously, if you can’t make this then there might not be much hope for you). And, when we say we make it once a week, we aren’t kidding. Click over for the simple steps to make our masterpiece!

Turkey Bolognese

Serves 4
Bring salted water to boil. Once boiling, add one box of whole wheat spaghetti. Mix lean ground turkey in a bowl with olive oil, chopped onions, garlic, salt, pepper, and a little garlic powder. Add some chili flakes if you like a little spice.
Heat a large sauté pan with olive oil (and a little butter if you’d like). Once hot, place turkey mixture in and stir consistently — so that the turkey continues to come apart — until very lightly browned. Reduce heat to medium.
Pour 1 24-oz jar of tomato sauce (we like Rao’s Marinara Sauce) over the turkey mixture and reduce heat to low-medium. Cover the pan.

Drain the pasta and put back in the pot. Pour the turkey mixture over the pasta and stir together well. Place in individual bowls and grate some fresh parmesan over the top. Serve!
If you’re a rock star, feel free to make this homemade tomato sauce. It’s also good to have some greens with this (or with any dinner, for that matter), so try it with a side of steamed spinach, or one of these recipes.
