How to Make a Healthy Spaghetti Recipe for Weight Loss

This hidden vegetable pasta recipe needs finely chopped veggies… so that you can hide them better.

But if you prefer a chunky vegetable pasta sauce, feel free to chop instead of mincing the veggies.

How to Make Veggie Bolognese Sauce:

  1. Heat a large pot over medium heat, spray with olive oil and add in the turkey, onion, bell peppers, mushrooms, and zucchini.
  2. Cook for 10 minutes, until the veggies start to soften. Break up the turkey as it cooks so it’s crumbled and mixed with the veggies.
  3. Add in the garlic and Italian Seasoning and cook for 2 minutes until fragrant.
  4. Pour in the crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste, salt and pepper and bring to light boil. Then reduce to a simmer and cook for 1-4 hours (the longer the better).
  5. When the sauce is nearly done, fill a large sauce pot 2/3 full with water and a good pinch of salt. Bring to a boil.
  6. Cook the spaghetti for 9-11 minutes, stirring occasionally until cooked to al dente.
  7. Strain out the water, add 1 cup of the veggie bolognese sauce to the pasta pot and mix with the spaghetti to well coat it.
  8. To serve add 1 cup of spaghetti to each plate, spoon over 1 cup of bolognese sauce, and serve.
