Recipe Ingredients for Pasta Bolognese

1/2 cup celery, finely chopped
1 cup onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup carrots, diced
8 oz mushrooms
3/4 lb penne pasta
3 cloves garlic
1 lb 90% lean ground beef
2 tbsp thyme
28 oz diced tomatoes
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup evaporated milk

Recipe Directions for Pasta Bolognese

  1. ***Substitutions for better health: the penne pasta with whole wheat pasta of your choice, the chicken broth with low sodium chicken broth, and the evaporated milk with non-fat evaporated milk***

  2. Set a large pot of water on the stove to boil, and cook the fettuccini according to the directions on the box.

  3. In the meantime, heat the oil in a large skillet over a medium-high heat. Add the onion, carrots, and celery and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes more, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic, ground beef, and thyme and cook until the meat is browned, breaking it up into small pieces as it cooks, about 5 minutes.

  4. Stir in the tomatoes and broth and cook for 5 minutes, or until sauce is thickened. Stir in the milk and cook for 1 minute more. Season with salt and pepper.

  5. When the pasta is done, drain it, put it back in the pasta pot, add the sauce and stir the sauce and pasta together. Put into serving bowls and top with Parmesan cheese.
