My newest obsession has arrived: WIDE zoodles, which I now call Pappardelle Zoodles. (Why did I never use the other side of my spiralizer until last week?) It totally revived my enjoyment of zoodles - I can say with honesty, I don't miss noodles in this dish. It was delicious. Bonus: it's passover in two weeks, and this would make an awesome, easy, quick and delicious weeknight meal.
So, here it is!
Italian Sausage Bolognese over Pappardelle Zoodles
6 large zucchini
4 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil (I use my garlic infused, as always)
4 cloves garlic, freshly minced
1 lb ground beef
1 lb of garlic or Italian sausage, sliced
4 - 5 C marinara sauce (can use more or less based on your preferred thickness)
freshly chopped basil, as garnish
Wash zucchini and cut the tip off one end
Spiralize zucchini using wide blade (I use this one, it's cheap and easy!)
Add 1 Tbsp olive oil to a pan and heat to medium high, brown ground beef & set aside
Add 1 Tbsp olive oil to a pan and brown on all sides, add beef back in
Add marinara sauce to meat and allow to simmer on low (at least 15 minutes)
season with freshly ground salt & freshly ground pepper
Heat another pan and add 1 Tbsp olive oil, add freshly minced garlic into the pan
Add zoodles into the pan and gently toss until heated
Add final Tbsp olive oil, and season with salt & pepper
Top with sauce mixture and fresh basil, mix and enjoy!
