Turkey Bolognese Pasta Bake

On 14th May 2015, This was Dinner

Another one I had nothing much to do with making. I only really assembled it to bake. This is the downside*/upside** or owning a puppy***

Preparing:

  • Finely chop an onion
  • Finely chop a garlic clove
  • Grate some cheddar
  • Grate some parmesan
  • Prepare some chicken stock
  • Preheat the oven to 180ºc (fan)
  • Get turkey mince, tinned chopped tomatoes, chipotle paste, pasta, mascarpone, oil & seasoning ready

Making:

Heat the oil in a pan and cook the onion until softened. Add the garlic and cook for a minute or two more.

Add the mince and brown. Stir in the chipotle paste and cook for another minute.

Add the tomatoes along with the stock. Cook for about half an hour. Stir occasionally and add water if it starts to get a little dry.

Cook the pasta according to the instructions.

In a separate bowl, mix the mascarpone with most of the cheddar and season.

Pop the turkey bolognese into a baking dish. Stir the cheese mixture through the pasta and put this on top then top with the remaining cheddar and the parmesan.

Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes until the cheese is bubbling and starting to turn golden at the edges.

* downside? I do love to cook

** upside? It’s nice to eat dinner before 8pm when it’s not a ‘quicky’

*** There is no downside to owning a puppy!
