“Our first user submitted recipe and it is a good one. Similar to my Kangaroo Bolognaise recipe but with a familiar meat. This also has a more traditional Italiano feel opposed to my recipe where I chuck whatever I feel like in. Great work Teacher_Lyf and keep the recipes coming. Note – As this is the first submitted recipe I feel compelled to be nice. Future submitters will likely be faced with mockery and/or ridicule.”

Prep Time: 5 mins
Cook Time: 10-15 mins
Skill Level: Intermediate
- 6-8 Medium Zucchinis
- 1 Large Brown Onion
- 2 Garlic Cloves
- Olive Oil
- 500g Mince Beef (Matt’s note – Premium Dude…+10 points if you get the reference)
- 2 cans Diced Tomatoes (Matt’s note – Cut some up yourself if you think you can handle it)
- 1 Small Tub Tomato Paste (approx. 4 Tbsps.)
- Seasoning (Chilli, Salt & Pepper)
- Parmesan Cheese (optional)
- Dice large brown onion and fry in large saucepan with olive oil.
- Add in 2 finely chopped or grated cloves of garlic.
- Add 500g of mince (best tasting for this recipe is beef – and I use the super lean organic beef).
- Once meat is mostly brown, add 2 cans of crushed tomatoes (check ingredients as some canned tomatoes add sugar etc! Only ingredients should be tomatoes and water).
- Add a small tub of tomato paste (go Leggos for good taste).
- Add seasoning – Himalayan salt, pepper, chilli and Italian herb mix are a good combo.
- Let this simmer away on low heat for 10 minutes. During this time use a spiraliser to make pasta looking spaghetti out of your zucchini.(Kmart spiraliser is great and only $15). Matt’s Note – Kmart I can edit this to Target or cut up – do the right thing Kmart 🙂
- Check on you sauce and add water if it’s too thick.
- Put zucchini pasta in the microwave for 4 minutes to soften it up and then add it to your pan of pasta sauce.
- Mix away! (Hot Tip – chop into your zucchini pasta with scissors to break up the lengths of your spaghetti so it’s easier to mix and eat).
