  • 1 large yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 5 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 carrot, finely chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 3/4 cup dry red wine
  • 4 tablespoons tomato paste

Continue to cook, stirring occasionally for about 1 minute longer. Add the ground beef and cook until the beef browns up a bit, about 3 minutes. Add the wine and tomato paste and cook until most of the liquid evaporates, about 4 minutes.

  3. While the sauce cooks heat a little oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the turnip noodles and cook, tossing the noodles often, until tender. About 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Divide the turnips noodles (or noodles of choice) between bowls. Top with the sauce and garnish with plenty of parmesan cheese and minced parsley.
