Paleo Pasta Bolognese

Standard

It’s hard pressed to find anyone that doesn’t love Italian, but when you’re Paleo, it often means making your favorite Italian recipes Paleo-friendly at home. This recipe was created for that exact purpose – to satisfy cravings for traditional Italian, in a Paleo-friendly way.

Growing up, we’d always enjoy Spaghetti Bolognese: pasta with a simply meat-based sauce originating from Bologna, Italy. Today, I can’t resist having this childhood favorite at least once a month, and thankfully Cappello’s almond-flour pasta makes this possible.

Let’s dive straight into the recipe:

INGREDIENTS

1 teaspoon coconut oil
1 lb ground beef
2 servings of home-made Marinara Sauce
1 pack Cappello’s Fettucine (available in most health food stores)

RECIPE

In a large saucepan, melt the coconut oil over medium heat.
Place the ground beef in the pan to cook, stirring often.
Once the meat is light brown, add the pre-made Marinara Sauce, cover with a lid and allow to simmer for about 5 minutes. This forms the home-made Bolognese Sauce.

In a medium pot, bring water to the boil and then add a pack of Cappello’s Fettucine.
Allow to cook in the boiling water for 45 seconds to a minute, stirring a few times.
Strain the pasta, plate it and dish a generous scoop of Bolognese sauce over the pasta before serving hot.
Top with ground black pepper, as desired.

Who says you can’t enjoy Italian and still be 100% Paleo?!

Mouth-Watering Marinara Sauce

Standard

Marinara Sauce seems like an innocent addition to any meal and a safe bet to order when eating out. The truth is though that like most Salad Dressing, restaurants and store-bought Marinara Sauce is commonly laced with vegetable oils, sugar and preservatives.

If you Read Your Labels you will find some high-quality (and more pricey) brands that offer bottled Marinara Sauce without the health side-effects, but there’s just something about picking out ripe tomatoes, dicing them in ones own kitchen and creating a quick and mouth-watering concoction that will have you serving Marinara Sauce on just about everything (or maybe that’s just me!)

INGREDIENTS

1/2 a tablespoon coconut oil
1/4 cup onions, chopped finely
3/4 cup tomatoes, diced
1 tablespoon garlic, chopped finely
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 sprinkle salt
1 tablespoon honey or raw agave nectar

RECIPE

In a small sauté pan, melt the coconut oil over medium heat.
Add the onions and cook for about a minute before adding the tomato, garlic, Italian seasoning and salt.
Allow the mixture to soften before adding the honey or raw agave nectar.
Continue cooking over medium heat for another few minutes, stirring continuously.
Serve hot over vegetables, protein, Paleo Pasta, or as a side for dipping.

It’s really that easy to enjoy the home-style taste of Italy!
