Beef Bolognese

Gluten Free | Dairy Free

Serves 4

A Beef Bolognese sauce can be made ahead of time so it's ready to go when dinner hits! It's a classic family favourite and a great protein and iron source.

If you go back and read my Who said you can’t eat pasta with a low carb lifestyle?

article I have showed you the different low carb noodle options you can have with the Bolognese Sauce.

As mentioned, I love to eat my bolognese with zucchini noodles "zoodles" and edamame pasta as they are low carb especially the edamame because it's low carb, low calorie whilst still being high in fibre and protein! It's a no brainer.
