Healthy spaghetti bolognese - nice and spicy!

  • 2 tbs. coconut oil, raw, extra-virgin, organic
  • 2 clove garlic, fresh, organic
  • 1 sml. onion, any type, organic
  • 1 tbs. Italian herbs or seasoning, organic
  • 2 chili pepper, red, fresh, organic
  • 1/2 lbs. beef, ground, free-range or grass-fed, organic
  • 28 oz. tomatoes, crushed, canned, organic
  • 1 lrg. zucchini, fresh, organic

Heat 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the minced garlic, chopped onion, Italian herbs, and diced chili peppers. Cook for 2 minutes. Add the ground beef to the herbs, and cook until brown. Add the tomatoes, bring to a boil, and let simmer for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the zucchini spaghetti: The easiest way to do this is using a spiralizer, but you can also make “noodles” using a julienne peeler or a mandolin slicer. When the sauce is just about done, heat the remaining tablespoon of coconut oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the zucchini noodles and cook, stirring occasionally, until the noodles are hot (this should only take a minute or two).

Serve the sauce on top of the noodles and enjoy!
