Our version of Chicken Bolognese is a lighter twist on the traditional Italian-style Bolognese sauce. Made with ground chicken and served over heart-healthy whole grain pasta, it tastes just as rich and hearty as the original.

• 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
• 1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
• 1 tablespoon sugar
• 2 teaspoons dried basil
• 1 teaspoon dried oregano
• 1 pound (16 ounces) bow tie pasta

What To Do:
