Recipe: Keto Zoodles Bolognese

Ingredients

  • 1 yellow onion
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 3 oz. celery stalks
  • 1½ lbs ground beef
  • 3 oz. butter or olive oil
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 14 oz. crushed tomatoes
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano or dried basil
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • water (optional)

Recipe Directions

  • Chop

    Chop the vegetables finely. Sauté in butter or olive oil until soft and add the ground beef.

  • Saute

    Sauté on high heat until everything has turned a nice color. Add the remaining ingredients, stir and let simmer on medium high for 15 minutes.

  • Simmer

    Lower the heat some more. Add water if the sauce is getting too thick. Let simmer for 20 minutes or more. The longer the sauce is allowed to simmer, the better the flavor.

  • Make Zoodles

    In the meantime, make the noodles. Use a spiralizer, mandolin or peeler to make long, thin strips of zucchini. Heat a frying pan and toss them around quickly in butter or olive oil. A minute is enough to keep them from going to soft.

    Note: If you dont have spiralizer or zoodle maker, most grocery stores sell prepared zoodles in the produce department, normally where the pre-cut produce is located.

  • Serve

    Taste the sauce and add more salt and pepper if needed. Serve the noodles warm with the hot sauce on top. Finish with a good grating of Parmesan cheese.

Tip: Note: If you dont have spiralizer or zoodle maker, most grocery stores sell prepared zoodles in the produce department, normally where the pre-cut produce is located.
