Fast And Easy Low Carb Spaghetti Bolognese
I’m not even kidding when I tell you how easy this is. Seriously. If I can make this from scratch in just a few minutes during a live stream in front of all of you, then there’s no excuse for anyone not to make and enjoy this dish! It’s fast and easy and the best part is that it’s served with Konjac or Shiritaki noodles which helps you lower the overall calories and up the fibre!
Konjac noodles are weirdly and delightfully gelatinous and translucent traditional Japanese noodles, common in Asian Cuisine. They are made from the konjac plant which is ground and shaped into various types of pasta and rice and they’re amazing! Shirataki noodles have almost no calories and virtually no carbs, making them perfect for any diet — especially a low carb or ketogenic diet. They are 97% water, 3% fibre and have traces of protein, fat, and calcium. As these noodles are loaded with fibre it’s important to drink plenty of water when you eat them. As a bonus they’ll keep you feeling fuller for longer.

In a blender mix your canned tomatoes, onion, garlic and Worcestershire sauce. Taste and if a little light in flavour, add more Worcestershire sauce and a couple of tablespoons of tomato paste for depth of flavour
Once mince is just cooked, add the sauce and let simmer for 10 minutes. Sauce will reduce and thicken and flavour will intensify slightly
