Reviewed Turkey Bolognese

Dec 22, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Very tasty! I loved the addition of carrots and celery in this bolognese. Other recipes I've tried were flat and boring, but this was chunky and full of flavor.

This was fantastic! I made the recipe as written, and I liked how flavorful it was. Fresh parsley and tomatoes made it really bright. I always overcook fish when I make it, so I was nervous, but it turned out perfect! I had leftovers, which my husband is not usually fond of, but he enthusiastically ate up the rest the next night. I'll definitely make...
