Dukan Diet Cruise Phase Recipe: Dukan “No Spaghetti” Bolognese

As you can from the name I’ve chosen for this recipe, there isn’t any spaghetti or other form of pasta in this dish.

There are three Dukan friendly pasta substitutes that you can use instead:

  • Shirataki Noodles
  • Ribbons of courgettes/zucchini
  • Spaghetti squash

This dish is also easily adapted for vegetarians or vegans by the substitution of the ground/minced beef with an alternative such as Quorn.
This isn’t a recipe which I follow rigidly I add whatever vegetables I have and the amount of water needed depends on how watery the tinned tomatoes are and how many vegetables I’ve added!
