Faux-pasta bolognese

Faux-pasta bolognese

I’m making pasta Bolognese again for my family, so I thought I’d share the recipe for my Bolognese sauce.  I’m having Zucchini Bolognese again 😉 .

Ingredients for 5 persons (+ leftovers):

  • 500 gr ground beef
  • 500 gr pork
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • garlic, chopped
  • salt, pepper, basil, chilli flakes
  • 750 gr passata
  • 1 tablespoon of tomato paste, or if you can find it “macinata” (minced sun dried tomatoes)

Heat the olive oil in a heavy based pan.  Add the onions and the minced meat and brown.  Add the spices, passata,  tomato paste and some water and stir.  Let cook on low for about 2 hours.

For the zucchini (for 1 person): preheat the oven at 175°C.   Cut 2 small zucchini in thin ribbons.  Mix with spices and herbs and 1 teaspoon of olive oil.  Put in the oven for about 15 minutes. Serve with the Bolognese sauce and some freshly grated Parmesan Cheese.

Update: You could also use spaghetti squash instead of zucchini!
