Healthy Spaghetti Bolognese

Healthy Spaghetti Bolognese – Healthy Spaghetti Recipe

Today I have the perfect healthy spaghetti Bolognese recipe for you. Spaghetti Bolognese is probably the most classic Italian food, besides pizza. But unfortunately, Italian cuisine does not always mean light cuisine.

Normal spaghetti Bolognese tends to have more than 1000 calories per serving. When eating good. Definitely not exactly figure friendly. That’s why I decided to create a healthy alternative for the classic Italian food.

How to make a healthy spaghetti bolognese?

For the perfect healthy bolognese recipe, it is crucial to reduce the fat content of the bolognese. So I thought we’d make a recipe for low-fat spaghetti bolognese, with fewer calories and less fat. Just the light version of the Italian classic.

The whole thing is relatively easy done. Because spaghetti in general are not really unhealthy. Only the fatty Bolognese sauce, which is often served with it, tends to be very high in calories.

Therefore, we have to use some kind of alternative. Which brings us to the ingredients for my healthy alternative. We swapped the classic beef with low fat beef tartar.

We also added more Carrots for extra flavor and vitamins and removed some extra olive oil. This is how we make our own delicious low-fat spaghetti bolognese, which is also perfect for dieters!

But enough said. Let’s best get started right away with the recipe for the healthy Spaghetti Bolognese.
