A cook once, eat twice + freeze-the-rest-favorite! The entire family typically loves spaghetti night! This recipe sneaks in extra nutrients from grass fed organ meat and a veggie focus! The vitamin C into the tomatoes will enhance your absorption of this super high iron staple!

You can also use the leftover bolognese as a nutrient dense pizza sauce

Serves: 8-10
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 70 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium-large brown onions, chopped
  • 6 large cloves garlic, chopped
  • 6-7 celery stalks, chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, grated
  • 1 medium zucchini, grated

  • 9 ounces/260g tomato paste
  • 1 14 ounce/400g can of chopped tomatoes
  • 250g – 500g gluten free pasta; we use quinoa, sorghum or buckwheat
  • Ghee or olive oil
  • 4 bay leaves
  • Fresh basil
  • Sea salt and pepper
  • 1 cup filtered water
  • Optional: 1/2 bottle red wine; we usually use a $15 Cabernet

Process:

  1. Add 2-3 tablespoons ghee or olive oil to a large pot on medium heat
  2. Add chopped onion, then celery then garlic
  3. Cook through to semi-translucent
  4. Add the grated carrot and zucchini and stir
  5. Add the beef mince, stir well until the mince is brown/cooked through
  6. Add a pinch of sea salt and fresh cracked pepper
  7. Add the can of chopped tomatoes and tomato paste
  8. Stir well and season with a pinch of sea salt and cracked pepper
  9. Add bay leaves and fresh basil
  10. Add the red wine. Stir, letting the red wine bubble and burn off. This will take approximately 10 minutes. To cut costs exclude the red wine, it will still be yum.
  11. Add 1/2 cup-1 cup of water and let it simmer for 20 minutes
  12. Season with sea salt and cracked pepper to taste
  13. Meanwhile boil your water, shred your Parmesan and cook your pasta
  14. Drain and rinse your pasta
  15. Use a soup ladle to scoop the bolognese atop each serving of pasta
  16. Add fresh basil atop each plate and serve

Substitutions and nutrient enhancing options:

  • Substitute parmesan cheese for nutritional yeast if you or your child are dairy intolerant. It has a nice cheesy flavor.
  • If you are avoiding starches, substitute spaghetti squash for the pasta. Cut in half longways, drizzle with extra virgin olive, place face down on a parchment-paper lined- pan and roast for 30-40 minutes
  • If your butcher does not have organ meat/ you cannot source it, use @ancestralnutrition primal energy grass fed beef liver powder instead. 3 teaspoons can be added with the tomatoes.
  • If you’d like to cut costs this recipe can be done without the red wine
  • If pork or veal are less expensive you can substitute any portion of the beef for another meat

Other Nutrient Notes:

  • Grass fed and finished beef + organ meat is one of the greatest sources of Iron, B Vitamins and Vitamin A
  • 5 fresh veggies for antioxidants like Vitamin C and A: zucchini, onion, garlic, celery, carrot, plus canned tomatoes
  • The iron in the beef is more readily absorbed because it is accompanied by the vitamin C in the tomatoes
