  • 1/2 Onion finely chopped
  • 3 cups Chopped Kale
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 2 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1 28 oz can Crushed Tomatoes
  • 3 tbsp Tomato Paste
  • 14 oz Zucchini Noodles
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and Peper to taste
  • 1 lb Leanest Ground Beef
  • 2 tbsp Chopped Fresh Parsley


  • Add 2 tablespoons olive oil to a large sauce pan set over medium heat. Once the oil is warm, add the garlic and onions and cook until the garlic is golden and the onions are translucent, about 3 minutes. Add in the chopped kale and season the mixture with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes more until the kale is softened. Transfer to a plate. 
  • Add the ground beef to the pan and break the meat into small pieces while it cooks. Season with salt, pepper and Italian Seasoning. Once the meat is browned, add back in the sautéed vegetables.
  • Add the crushed tomatoes, tomato paste to the pan. Reduce the heat to low simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20-30 minutes. While the sauce cooks, make the zucchini noodles.
  • Add 1 T. olive oil to a large sauté pan set over medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot, add the zucchini noodles and cook them, tossing them constantly, for 2-3 minutes just until they’re wilted slightly. Do not add any salt to the pant and do not overcook the noodles or they will be soggy.
  • When ready to serve, plate the zucchini noodles, top them with the bolognese and garnish with freshly chopped parsley. Serve immediately.
