Pasta with Bolognese Sauce
Recipe developed by Jessica Seinfeld
1 medium onion
2 garlic cloves
Nonstick cooking spray
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 celery stalk
1/2 pound lean ground sirloin
1/2 pound lean ground turkey
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
1 cup reduced-fat low-sodium
chicken or beef broth
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup sweet potato puree
2 tablespoons grated
1 package Garofalo* spaghetti
Put onion and garlic in a food processor and finely chop (or chop by hand).
Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set over medium-high heat.
When the skillet is hot, add olive oil, then onion and garlic; cook until onion and
garlic begin to soften, 2-3 minutes.
Meanwhile, put carrots and celery in the food processor and finely chop; add to the
skillet and cook 3-4 minutes longer.
Increase the heat to high, add ground meats and break into small chunks with a
wooden spoon. Add salt and pepper and cook until the meat begins to brown, 3-4
minutes. Add tomatoes, broth and sugar. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer,
stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes. Stir in sweet potato puree and Parmesan.
Cook pasta in a large pot of salted boiling water according to package directions
until al dente. Drain in a colander, then return the pasta to the pot. Pour the warm
sauce over the pasta (toss if desired). Makes 4 servings.
