Recipe

Bolognese is probably one of the most popular pasta recipes around and it isn't hard to make a delicious healthier version that's also low in carbohydrates. The base for this recipe is zucchini noodles, but you could use any vegetable noodles you like. To that we add a flavorful sauce made with carrots, celery, onion, garlic, and crushed tomatoes that's simmered with ground turkey. Finally we serve it up with low fat ricotta cheese. It's filling and is sure to satisfy any pasta cravings.
