There is something so comforting about a bowl full of pasta topped with a hearty meat sauce. I have always enjoyed pasta but as an adult I enjoy it even more when paired with a vibrant glass of red wine. Throw in a side of garlic bread and I am in heaven!
This month, through the Secret Recipe Club, I was assigned Ashley’s blog Kitchen Meets Girl. I was immediately intrigued by her diverse recipes and gorgeous photos. I was torn between making this Bolognese dish, her Honey-Lime Chicken Skewers and her Jalapeno Popper Turkey Chili.
I opted to make the Weeknight Bolognese because I was craving a pasta dish. I consider pasta more of a treat which means I don’t have it very often. As Ashley indicated, this dish can go from your kitchen to table in 45 minutes. It’s the perfect weeknight dish. I threw in a handful of chopped peppers to sneak some veggies into the sauce. Other than that, I followed the original recipe.
I think this recipe would also be great to make and freeze to use at a later date. I love freezer friendly meals!
