For an easy weeknight dinner serve this crock pot turkey Bolognese sauce with zucchini noodles. Bonus—you can use this paleo and Whole30 spaghetti sauce for so many recipes!
This paleo take on slow cooker Bolognese sauce couldn't be easier. Just dump everything in the crock pot in the morning. And spiralize the zucchini noodles when you get home. This recipe is perfect for meal prep and freezes well so you can use it for multiple meals. Either way, it's an easy slow cooker dinner to make this week.
Easy crock pot Bolognese sauce
What makes this ground turkey crock pot recipe so easy is not browning the meat first. The turkey goes in the slow cooker raw. The key to getting the right texture is leaving the ground turkey in chunks while it cooks. Just cover it with the sauce—don't mix it in completely (I learned this the hard way). When you break it up after it cooks, it creates a texture more like traditional meat sauce.
I use my homemade herbes de Provence for the Italian herb seasoning in this recipe. The blend of Mediterranean herbs works in this dish (as long as there is no lavender in it). But you can use any Italian herb blend you like.
I also love this turkey Bolognese over spaghetti squash roasted whole in the oven, it gives it a little bit of extra sweetness. Try it over your favorite pasta substitute. Or use this easy paleo spaghetti sauce in recipes that call for meat sauce.
