Wash produce before use

1

Prep the zucchini and carrot ribbons

  • Trim the ends from the zucchini. Lay the zucchini flat; using a peeler, shave the zucchini lengthwise into thin ribbons. Pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Peel or scrub the carrots and trim the ends. Lay the carrots flat; using a peeler, shave the carrots lengthwise into thin ribbons.
Transfer the carrots and zucchini to a colander and sprinkle lightly with salt. Let stand while you start the Bolognese.

2

Prep the turkey; cook the Bolognese

  • Cut a small corner from the ground turkey packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the mirepoix, season generously with salt, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables start to soften, 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the turkey, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring to break up the meat, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in the Bolognese sauce base and cook until the turkey is cooked through and the sauce is hot, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover to keep warm. Meanwhile, cook the vegetables.
