veggie pasta with chicken "bolognese" sauce

in the not much to look at file. but, was trying to make a "semi" healthier version of bolognese sauce.

found some ground chicken and this cool looking corkscrew veggie pasta. sadly, the pasta lost a lot of the vibrant color while cooking. still was good. it's pretty chewy.

using the basic tomato sauce.
in a blender ~ combine 2 cans of tomatoes (14oz can), tsp dried oregano, tsp dried basil, tbsp dried garlic, tbsp parsley, and a 4oz can of sliced mushrooms. puree until thick and smooth.
add to 1lb cooked ground chicken.
cook unto hot. this is a longer it simmers/better it tastes sauce.
serve over cooked veggie pasta.
