This Bolognese sauce is essentially made with beans and tomatoes. I created this recipe using beans instead of ground beef for a 'cleaner' healthier recipe. The beans still make it high in protein, and is also easily digestible. This is a great sauce on top of brown rice pasta, or zucchini pasta or even rice. I first made this recipe for my very first Earth Diet "All You Can Eat" event November 2013. It was one of the most favorite dishes at the event. Enjoy! Love Liana.
