2 tbsp olive oil

500g turkey mince

1 large onion, finely chopped

1 garlic clove, crushed

2 large carrot, peeled and diced

150g pack button mushrooms, roughly chopped

1 tbsp tomato purée

2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes

4 large courgettes grated pecorino or parmesan, to serve

handful basil leaves

Courgette Bolognaise Method

Heat 1 tbsp of the olive oil in a large saucepan and add the turkey mince. Fry until browned, then scoop into a bowl and set aside.

Add the onion to the pan and cook on a low heat for 8-10 mins until tender. Then add the garlic, stirring for 1 min or so, followed by the carrot and the mushrooms, stirring for about 3 mins, until softened. Tip the turkey mince back into the pan, add the tomato purée, give everything a quick stir and tip in the chopped tomatoes. Fill 1 can with water and pour into the pan and bring to the boil. Once boiling, lower the heat and simmer until the sauce has thickened and the veg is tender.

When the Bolognese is nearly ready, stir through the soy sauce and some seasoning. Spiralize your courgettes on the large noodle attachment. Heat a large frying pan with the remaining 1 tbsp olive oil and add your courgette. Cook until slightly softened, for 2-3 mins. Season with salt and serve topped with the turkey bolognese, grated cheese and basil leaves.
