Better Bolognese (With Mushrooms)

RECIPES – ENTREES, PALEO

This Better Bolognese is a weeknight staple in our house – loaded with additional veggies and mushrooms, it can be made either with organic meat or without it for a hearty vegan version.

I made this on an episode of The Doctors on CBS. We did a whole segment on the Health Benefits of Mushrooms and How to Increase Vitamin D in Mushrooms before cooking. Check those posts for the highlights!

I love putting this sauce over spiralized zucchini noodles, or one of my favorite brands of gluten-free pasta. My husband sometimes eats it just on its own, as it’s quite delish and chunky, like a stew.

To speed up chopping the veggies, I’m obsessed with my veggie chopper from Amazon. It perfectly dices any veggie in a matter of seconds.

Ingredients

Beef

Mushroom Bolognese Sauce

Pasta

  • Gluten-Free pasta of choice or zucchini noodles

Instructions

  • First, brown the beef: Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add a tablespoon of olive oil, and then the ground beef. Break up any large clumps with a wooden spoon, and cook until it's no longer pink, about 8 minutes. (To make the sauce vegan / vegetarian, simply omit this step).
  • Meanwhile, heat a separate large skillet over medium heat. Add a tablespoon of olive oil, then the onion, celery, carrots, mushrooms, garlic, and oregano. Sauté for 5-7 minutes, until everything is soft.
  • Reduce the heat of the veggie pan to low, then add the tomato sauce, parsley, and the cooked beef once it's ready. Mix well, and simmer for at least 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste, if needed.
  • Pour the sauce over your favorite pasta or zucchini noodles, and garnish with more fresh parsley.
