    I used 1/2 lb of ground turkey & 1/2 lb of sweet turkey sausage. I love garlic and added 1 tblsp of garlic powder to turkey meat, along with the fresh garlic.

    I used chopped green onions and finely chopped green pepper. I also simmered all together in a pot.

    A twist is to mix pasta and sauce in a bowl adding mozzarella cheese. Place in a casserole dish and top with Parmesan cheese. Bake 15 minute or until cheese is melted.

    I had two pounds of ground beef thawed since yesterday so Is decided to try this recipe. I figured I would use the remaining meat to make child tomorrow. Well it was so easy and delicious I’m now making a second batch of sauce to freeze with the extra meat instead of chili!

    I used half pureed whole tomatoes (I had leftover from my lasagna earlier this week), and half regular tomato sauce. I liked the small chunks of tomatoes. And dried thyme and basil, but fresh parsley.

    This is off the charts good. My whole family loved it. I could’t find Muir Glen chunky tomato sauce so I bought 2 cans Muir Glen tomato sauce and 1 can of whole Organic Central Market San Marzano tomatoes. I scooped out the whole tomatoes, crushed them up a bit and threw them into the sauce. This recipe has such wonderful flavor!!!

    The recipe is great, quick and very tasty. Much better than classical bolognese sauce!! Thank you for this recipe. I just cooked it in the Czech republic.

    my printer was not working…so i was running back and forth from the computer monitor to the kitchen lol. Anyway, I only used one 14 oz can of diced tomatoes with basil, oregano and garlic and decided to add the smallest can of tomato paste with basil for added texture and it turned an excellent dish into complete awesomeness that was a total hit. Thank You!

    Ahh yes…. a Classic…variations made many times over for hungry teenage boys at Friday night sleepovers in our loft!. Good Memories…a long time ago indeed and missed. Anyway…I am now, by no choice gluten-free…….and I just wish to convey that rice, or a combination of rice and corn….now-a-days maybe quinoa too and others….is a tasty pasta alternative especially for recipes such as this with a combination of many ingredients… goes on.
