Spaghetti Squash Bolognese

This hearty, rich Bolognese dish is a perfect way to satisfy that cold-weather craving for warm comfort food. It taste even better the next day, which makes it perfect to take to work!


1 large spaghetti squash, cooked

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 carrot, chopped

1 onion, chopped

1 stalk celery, chopped

1 1/2 lbs ground beef or turkey

1/4 cup tomato paste

1 tsp salt

2 cups crushed tomatoes, preferably San Marzano (they taste the best)

1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped

Parmesan cheese, optional


In a small pot over medium heat, add 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, onions, carrot, garlic and celery. Cook until onions are translucent, about 4-5 minutes.

In a large pot add 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil and cook the beef or turkey. Drain the fat and add the cooked onion mixture.

Add the tomato paste and stir for 2-3 minutes. Add salt and crushed tomatoes. Once it boils, bring it down to a gentle simmer and cook uncovered for 20 minutes.

Pour bolognese over spaghetti squash, add fresh basil.

Top with parmesan cheese, if you choose :)
