Chicken Bolognese Recipe


If you’re trying to eat less red meat but love a good bolognese, this is a great recipe using either minced chicken or turkey mince. If you can get the darker leg/ thigh mince the result will be even better.

Ingredients – Serves 4

  • Olive oil 1 onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, peeled and finely chopped
  • 500g chicken or turkey mince
  • 1 glass of white wine
  • 1 can of chopped tomatoes Bomba! tomato paste
  • Around 3 tablespoons Handful of fresh herbs – we used oregano, rosemary and thyme Spinach tagliatelle
  • Around 400g or enough to serve 4
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Parmesan or pecorino, grated


1. Heat a good glug of olive oil in a large pan over a medium heat. Add the onion and cook out for at least 5 minutes or until soft and translucent.

2. Next, add the mince and stir well to combine – once it is all cooked through, add the garlic, the wine and stir well. Let it cook out a little longer. Then add the Bomba! tomato paste, if you cannot get Bomba – just use regular tomato purée. Combine thoroughly then add the herbs, tinned tomatoes and season well. Simmer over a low heat for 10-15 minutes.

3. Whilst the mince simmers, cook the pasta in a large saucepan of boiling salted water according to the instructions on the packet. Drain, and then serve in bowls with the bolognese. Top with freshly grated parmesan or pecorino.
