My children would live on macaroni and cheese, pizza, and spaghetti with meatballs or any type of meat sauce. If I provide them with any of the mentioned choices, they are happy campers!
Luckily, I have found ways to make these dishes not only delicious but also healthy for them. As long as they are enjoying the flavors and getting the proper nutrients from the food, I am a happy mommy.
My beef bolognese sauce is meaty and rich in flavor, and it’s the perfect addition to the zucchini noodles.
How to make Beef Bolognese sauce?
The method is simple. But first, here’s a quick history. The sauce is originated near Bologna, Italy. The original version includes pancetta and milk. The recipe has progressed over time throughout Italy and different part of the world.
So feel comfortable to add your touch.
For this recipe, in a hot skillet, I brown the beef for about 5 minutes.
Once brown, I added salt and pepper. Stir. Then added the crushed tomatoes, onions, herbs and garlic. Cook for about 2 minutes.
Then I added the tomato sauce. Stir. And let simmer on low for 7 minutes. Remove from heat set aside.
Use a spiralizer to cut the zucchini noodles. Top the noodles with the sauce and enjoy warm.

We love Bolognese sauce! In fact, we still make it the old-fashioned way — pancetta, milk, and wine. So yummy and the meat turns out almost creamy. Your sauce looks wonderful too. We love a rich meaty sauce on our pasta. And of course we have to have some homemade bread and a glass of wine. Golly, I’m getting hungry just looking at the photos.
Wine always pairs well. Thank you!
Now THIS is my comfort food. I could live without chocolate but I couldn’t live without hearty red sauces like this – on pasta or even on healthy zucchini noodles like this! Yum!
I just love a good bolognese sauce – so rich and meaty – it’s one of my favs!! I like to eat it over pasta, but also just like it plain with some crusty buttered bread 🙂
