PIMPED UP WINTER BOLOGNESE

PIMPED UP WINTER BOLOGNESE

This pimped up winter bolognese-style sauce is filled with grounding winter vegetables that are both hearty and filled with nutrients that will aid your immune system, circulation and gut health. You can serve it over gluten free pasta, zucchini or sweet potato noodles, “slim” noodles (made from konjac root) or it tastes great just on its own. It freezes well and is great for lunch the following day.
