The Best Easy Paleo Bolognese Meat Sauce Recipe

Best-Easy Paleo Bolognese Meat Sauce Recipe

Ahh Italian Bolognese Sauce… one of the most popular things to ever exist. It’s a well loved classic alright! And with good reason.

While a large majority of people tend to favor spice packets, “just add ground beef” mixes when cooking this recipe at home, or saving it for special occasions at a local pasta joint – it’s (as with most things) so much more satisfying AND delicious to make it from scratch at home. 

Not only is our recipe tried and tested over many years until it became the perfect spaghetti bolognese sauce – it is also a deliciously easy recipe that I truly consider the BEST.

It’s rich and hearty, and it’s pretty crazy to think that this is a healthy bolognese recipe. You know, considering just how good it tastes.

We eat this pretty much every week, or at the very least every other week, but it’s always in our dinner menu rotation.

The other amazing thing about it? It’s low-carb, it’s gluten-free (depending on your choice of noodle to serve it with), it’s keto, it’s paleo and whole 30 friendly.

It ticks every box!

How To Make Traditional Paleo Whole 30 Spaghetti Bolognese Meat Sauce?

Firstly, my recipe contains no wine, but you can easily splash a bit of red wine in there while cooking (or just sip some while cooking – it all ends up in the same place, right?).

  1. Brown the beef and onions together in a pot.
  2. Dump everything else on top.
  3. Put a lid on it.
  4. Let it simmer for 25-30 minutes (giving it an occasional stir).
  5. Serve it up!

Couldn’t be easier, amirite?

The flavor that develops out of this collection of simple ingredients is ridiculous!

The carrots are a very important part of this recipe, since their natural sweetness does a great job of cutting through the acidity of the tomatoes to give a much more balanced flavor.
