Bob Harper's Ground Chicken Bolognese

| By Bob Harper

Trainer and fitness guru Bob Harper agrees with several other nutritionists that carbs are back - if you do them right. This chicken bolognese is protein-packed and delicious. For dinner, pour it over one of Harper's favorites: high-fiber spelt pasta, antioxidant-rich sorghum pasta, or protein-packed quinoa pasta; you can't lose! If you really want to cut carbs, it'll also taste great over some homemade zucchini noodles!
