This is a very satisfying bolognese-ish pasta sauce. It's my favourite sauce for pasta in the winter because it's hearty like a regular bolognese, but not as boring. The tarragon, pureed carrots and red wine are the secret!!

Recipe Ingredients for January Tagliatelle

1 lb Extra Lean Ground Turkey
3 tbsp fresh tarragon
2 tbsp fresh oregano
2 tbsp fresh rosemary
1 cup sliced orange
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 medium spanish onion
2 cups boiled carrots
1 cup boiled Celery
1 cup Dry Red Wine (napa cabs work nicely)
3 cups diced tomatoes
4 oz. Pecorino Romano
1 Salt to taste
1 Pepper to taste

Recipe Directions for January Tagliatelle

  1. Make sure you do all your prep work before you start cooking. Boil the carrots and celery until they are very soft- but not mush. Chop your onion finely and wash the herbs. If you are blanching the tomatoes- do that before you move to step two. Do all the things i just listed before going on to step two.

  2. Ok, so your prep work is done. Now you can begin!

  3. In a large sauce pot- heat the olive oil on a LOW setting, with the tarragon, oregano, rosemary and orange slices. Let the flavours infuse with the oil for about 15-20 minutes for maximum awesomeness.

  4. While the oil is heating, put the red wine, boiled carrots and boiled celery into the food processor. Puree into a smooth paste.

  5. Remove the herbs and orange slices from the oil.

  6. Add the wine/carrot/celery mixture to the oil. Add the finely chopped onions. Turn the heat up SLIGHTLY (med) and saute the mixture into the olive oil. About 10 min.

  7. Now add the lean ground pork and lean ground beef, as well as your tomatoes of choice, and a little bit of sea salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste.

  8. Stir everything together. Then, cover the pot with a lid and turn the heat back down to med-low. Let the sauce simmer for about 30 min.

  9. Now is a good time to start your pasta. I like Tagliatelle- but Fettucine works well also.

  10. After the 30 min are up- smother the pasta in sauce and sprinkle with fresh pecorino cheese

  11. Enjoy!!
