Trader Joe's: A grocery store. A culture. A DESTINATION. I don't work for TJ's, I am simply a customer who loves the store, the products, & the experience.
This blog was a year-long project. In 2015 I reviewed 1 TJ's product EVERY SINGLE DAY. I visited lots of TJ's stores around the country, and when the year ended I couldn't stop. I still post often (though not daily) & I welcome your comments on the products & reviews.

Day 1 - ""Just Sauce" Turkey Bolognese
I will start this year-long blog off with one of our
FAVORITE Trader Joe’s products – TURKEY BOLOGNESE. This is one of the very, very best staples
you can have in your freezer. I kid you
not! We always have an extra one on
"Just Sauce" Turkey Bolognese
What it is – frozen Bolognese sauce for pasta, but
instead of BEEF, it is made with TURKEY.
We are not health nuts at our house.
We do not eat this sauce because it is turkey as opposed to beef. We eat it because it is SO DARN TASTY!!!!! It really is delicious! And such a simple meal – boil up some pasta,
heat this in the microwave, make a quick green vegetable, and hey presto, your
dinner is ready! This is our go-to meal,
especially on evenings where we have both worked and are exhausted.
The sauce is amazing – it’s rich and tomatoe-y (is that a
word?). There is a lot of ground turkey in it which
makes for a hearty meal. You can put
cheese over it, but if you do not have any on hand you will still be very happy
and satisfied. And FULL. The two of us eat one package of this per
dinner. Find it in the frozen foods section.
David adds – points to stress here – it is DELICIOUS, satisfying,
and very, very quick and easy to make.
