Bolognese is one of those recipes that you may expect is hard to make healthier, but with a few simple changes you can make a surprisingly healthy and veggie packed dish that everyone will love. To lighten things up and add some extra vitamins and nutrients, I like to add lots of veggies, like this simple spiralized zucchini. Not only does this make the recipe healthier, it also means you get to eat twice as much since the zucchini noodles add lots of volume. That's always a plus for me, especially on nights I am starving and want to eat everything in site. You could use any variety of veggies - zucchini, summer squash, spaghetti squash, or eggplant are all great options.
