When I was growing up, my mother made a version of this chicken ragu every week. It is honestly one of my favorite meals—hearty, filling, healthy and easy.

Next to the chicken breasts and thighs at the store, you will find ground chicken…and usually at a really good price (major plus in my book).

So, here’s how you make it:

Start with ground chicken, your favorite store-bought marinara sauce, some roughly chopped onions, carrots and celery, fresh or dried garlic and rosemary, and some wine. Here’s the beauty of this recipe…if you don’t have wine, exclude it. No rosemary on hand? Go for thyme or even chicken seasoning. I love adding the onion, carrot and celery but have made this plenty of times without them. Don’t sweat it. I promise this dish will be delicious anyway.

First things first. Get your water going for the pasta. You don’t want to be waiting around for the water to boil.

Cook the veggies over medium heat until soft, and then add the garlic and rosemary. I love this step because the kitchen smells so good!

After about 30 seconds (you don’t want to burn the garlic), throw in the ground chicken. Break up the chicken with a spoon or spatula as it browns.

Now, move the pot off the heat, pour in your wine and then return it to the heat. (This is a precaution since we are adding alcohol.)

Finally, pour in the marinara sauce. (Stand back a bit—it might splatter.) Turn down the heat to medium-low and let it simmer for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, add your pasta to the boiling water so that everything will finish at the same time.

That’s it. You’re done!
