Delicious Low Carb Zucchini Noodle Bolognese

All around the world, parents have been using bolognese as a way to sneak more veggies into their families. And now you can add yet another serve of greens to the traditional family favourite, thanks to zucchini noodles!

These ‘noodles’ give you that pasta feeling but with a much lower hit of carbohydrate. This means you won’t be left feeling too-full and sluggish after your meal.

If you don’t have a spiraliser, you can make them with a vegetable peeler or a julienne peeler (these are available in most homewares stores and are not too expensive).
