With our first cold snap of the season, thoughts of a big bowl of warm comfort food comes to mind. But, you don’t have to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, nor need a ton of ingredients to create that big ol’ hug in a bowl…as well as giving it a different and tasty spin!

My Bolognese uses frozen chopped veggies, which saves tons of prep time, and a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies adds another layer of flavor. Of course, the touch of wine doesn’t hurt either!! My favorite part of this recipe is the polenta. I love serving the Bolognese over it as opposed to a standard pasta. It gives the dish additional flavor, texture and just seems a bit fancy!
