I wanted to create a flavourful nutrient-dense simple bolognese sauce. This recipe brings home all of the authentic traditional bolognese sauce feels, but with a modern fresh light twist. Feel free to add extra veg in if you prefer too, as bolognese acts as a wonderful vehicle for more veg (especially for my kids!) Often I will add in some diced celery and carrots (I learned this from my amazing Italian friends when I lived in Naples), or you can just stick to my simple recipe below! Try using some grated dairy/ soy-free cheese, or cheese from pasture-raised cows, or omit it. I love sprinkling fresh herbs from the garden on top of this dish such as basil and parsley.
Instead of employing gluten-free spaghetti, which we might enjoy as a treat on occasion, this dish calls for zoodles. Zucchini noodles are made with a spiraliser (to purchase, try amazon.com) that create pasta-looking spaghetti. I say pasta-looking because it isn’t fair to say that they mimic regular pasta – they don’t. They do however look like pasta and have a neutral flavor just like pasta. If you feel the zoodles are not enough try mixing them with some gluten-free spaghetti (we do a 60 : 40 split zoodles to GF spaghetti respectively.) Sometimes we prefer this option when looking for a more hearty pasta meal. Enjoy!
