A twist on a pasta with bolognese sauce using ground bison instead of the traditional beef.

  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp fresh basil, chopped
  • 9 mini bell peppers, chopped
  • 1 cup of cooking water, reserved from pasta


  • Heat water in a medium size pot over high heat until boiling. This will eventually be for pasta.

    Note: Ancient Harvest Supergrain pasta is a great gluten free pasta to try. The consistency of the noodles are very similar to that of traditional whole grain pasta. Don’t overcook Supergrain noodles as they will turn very mushy if overcooked. Check your worcestershire sauce for gluten content. There are many brands available that are gluten free, not all are.
