Carb Free Zoodle Bolognese Recipe

"pasta free bolognese"

Welcome to my carb free zoodle bolognese recipe.

I love bolognese and I am sure most people do. It is so easy to make that it is probably associated with the one meal that men can make when they leave home. They make it for their dates and they make it for their partners on special occasions such as wedding anniversaries and birthdays.

However I may say that my Grandma could never make it. She was a fantastic cook but did traditional 1950’s cooking and the thought of Italian food was too much. I remember watching her break up the spaghetti as she could never understand how to bend it as it cooked! But when could make the most amazing casseroles, stews and cakes I was still happy!

When I make it though, I always feel like I am not making an effort. After all, I can do it in twenty minutes and it always feels like a cheat meal. But it tastes so good and everyone is always happy.

But when you do it you end up eating all that low quality white pasta and you are left with this horrible bloated feeling afterwards. So why not do it carb free with courgette instead of spaghetti?

I have found that because courgette is softer than spaghetti that it is much quicker to cook and the kids will love it just as much.

Ingredients
  • 1 Large Courgette
  • 1 Medium Onion
  • 1Tbsp Garlic Puree
  • 250g Minced Beef
  • Can Tinned Tomatoes
  • 1Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 28g Cheddar Cheese
  • 1Tbsp Oregano
  • 2Tsp Parsley
  • 1Tsp Basil
  • Salt & Pepper
Instructions
  1. Using your spiralizer shred your courgette until they resemble zoodles. Steam it in your steamer for 10 minutes.
  2. Peel and dice your onion and place it in the wok. Add the garlic and olive oil and cook until your onion is golden. Add the mince and seasoning and cook for 10 minutes until your mince is evenly cooked. Add the tinned tomatoes and cook on a high heat until the tomatoes have reduced and you have a lovely bolognese.
  3. Drain your zoodles and place the bolognese on top. Sprinkle with some cheese and serve!
Notes
I prefer to cook mine with a can of tinned tomatoes. It carries a lot more nutritional value than tomato sauce and as long as you chop up the tomatoes and allow it to reduce in the pan you will have the same end result!
