What is Bolognaise?

According to Wikipedia:

Bolognese sauce is a meat-based sauce originating from Bologna, Italy, hence the name. In Italian cuisine, it is customarily used to dress tagliatelle al ragù and to prepare lasagne alla bolognese.

In other words, it is tomato based spaghetti sauce with a fancy name. 🙂

Must Have Resources:

When making Keto bolognese at home, you really need to have the following Amazon affiliate tools on hand.

Measuring Spoons and Cups – I love this set!  The spoons fit nicely into spice containers.

Deep Sided-Pan – I’ve told you before that I am all about Farberware, but a true southern woman has at least one good cast iron skillet!  For this recipe, you need to use a cast iron skillet for sure!


If you want to eat this over zucchini noodles, you want a spiralizer.  It is also great over spaghetti squash!
