Let’s put together a thick meaty Bolognese sauce from ground beef and tomatoes and flavor it with smoky onion, camphor-like oregano, and mildly peppery basil. But instead of dressing pasta with it let’s use it on zucchini “noodles”, which we cut with the spiral cutter.

How to Cook Zucchini Noodles With Bolognese Sauce

  1. Heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil in a saucepan over low heat. Add the onion and garlic. Cook and stir until tender.
  2. Add the dried oregano and tomato paste. Stir them in. Add the tomato puree and basil, season with sea salt and pepper, stir them in, then set aside.
  3. Add the remaining olive oil and ground beef to a skillet over medium-high heat. Break it into smaller pieces.
  4. Season with sea salt and pepper. Cook it until brown while occasionally stirring.
  5. Transfer the cooked meat to the saucepan and mix it in. Cook and stir until it bubbles over medium heat. Remove from heat.
  6. Cut the zucchini into “noodles” using a spiral slicer. Serve the ground meat mixture on a bed of zucchini.
