Every week I try and cook up an amazing Italian dish that will impress the men in my house. Tonight’s dish was inspired by Jillian Harris’ recent Spaghetti Bolognese blog post. If you’re not currently following Jill and decide tonight is the night, be prepared to see some dangerously tempting dishes! After my mouth watering discovery, I decided to re-work the recipe in an attempt to create a healthier version of Jillian’s “party in your mouth!” I hope you thoroughly enjoy this clean-eating dish in my attempt at taking on a true Bolognese recipe!
Eat your heart out!
Clean Eating Spaghetti Squash Bolognese
1/2 pound ground turkey
3 cloves garlic
1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
2 tablespoons xylitol
1 1/2 tablespoons dried basil
1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon parsley
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
In a large skillet, cook the ground turkey with onions, peppers, garlic and seasonings.
Once meat is fully cooked, add your crushed tomatoes and tomato sauce. Allow to simmer for at least 20 minutes. The longer it simmers the richer the flavours become. Serve with baked spaghetti squash and a salad of your choice!
