First real dinner in new home

A new post! It's been ages. Why? I'm not sure. Just don't have so much to say about food at the moment. Perhaps because while I was living at my sister's I was sort of on pause. Perhaps because I am just making the same old thing. But today I made something up again, in celebration of having gathered together an eclectic assortment of kitchen stuff for my new house. It is still really lacking in furniture and flatmates, but I'm getting there. So today's dinner was a white bolognaise, inspired by the turkey mince that was on special. It was good, I recommend you make it, and to finish off my evening I am going to go to bed with a movie and a bowl of cocoa puffs. After walking my whining dog that is. So, on to the recipe!

Creamy Turkey Bolognaise

1 tablespoon butter
1 brown onion, diced
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
500 grams turkey mince
300 grams creme fraiche
1/4 cup grated parmesan
Salt and pepper
Spaghetti for 4 people

First place a large pot of water on the stove to boil, as this is quite a quick meal to make. Add salt so that your pasta tastes good.

Next melt the butter in a large pan and add the onion, garlic, oregano and thyme. Cook until the onion is soft. Then add the turkey and cook, stirring, until the mince is browned and crumbled into small pieces.

Don't forget to check the water and when it is boiling, add the spaghetti to cook.

Meanwhile, turn the heat under the turkey down and add the creme fraiche and parmesan to the mince, stirring it through. Let it cook a little and taste it - season with salt and pepper as needed. I thought it needed quite a lot of salt and pepper, but that is just my preference.

Take the turkey mixture off of the heat and just leave it until the pasta is ready. When the pasta is done, drain it and add it to the turkey mixture. Combine the two so that the spaghetti is all covered, then serve.
