Spiralized Zucchini covered with Chunky Tomato Sauce. This sauce is my go-to sauce for bold flavor. It is perfect for zoodles, lasagna, or any kind of pasta.
1 T olive oil
1 lb grass-fed ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 T minced garlic
1 – 30 oz. can of tomato puree
1 – 14.5 oz. can of diced tomatoes
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper or to taste
If using zucchini noodles, spiralize according to machine directions. Or prepare your regular spaghetti noodles. Set aside.
Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add ground beef and chopped onion, and cook until meat is brown, stirring frequently. Drain.
Add remaining ingredients. Bring to a low boil, stirring often. Reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered for 45 minutes.
Two options for combining with your noodles. Add your zucchini noodles or regular pasta to the sauce and cook for 2-3 minutes. Or pour your sauce directly into your serving dishes over the (uncooked) zucchini noodles or (cooked) regular pasta. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
