"Bolognese" soup or turkey (beef) tomato and pasta soup is comfort food at its best. It's hearty and filling, but not too heavy - it's just right.

  • 2 tablespoons oil olive, sunflower, canola
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 2 medium carrots sliced
  • 400 grams ground turkey (1 lb) or beef
  • 2 cans chopped tomatoes (400 grams/14 oz cans)
  • 4 cups broth chicken or beef
  • 1 bay leave
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 200 grams small pasta (7 oz)
  • 2-3 teaspoons sugar optional, if tomatoes are too sour
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onions and carrots and saute 4-5 minutes then add garlic and saute 1 minute longer. Add ground turkey (or beef) season with salt and pepper and cook until browned. If using beef, when cooked, drain off the excess fat.
  • Add broth, chopped tomatoes, bay leaves, dried oregano, sugar (if using), and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Add in pasta and reduce heat to medium. Boil stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, about 15 - 20 minutes.
  • When cooked, remove bay leave and serve warm garnished with parmesan cheese.
