My husband has been such a trooper throughout my autoimmune protocol diet journey. His classic tomato sauce with wheat pasta has been replaced with nomato sauce and brown rice pasta. While it’s a great alternative and solution for me, it’s not exactly the same. There have been so many great recipes that have come from this diet (ahem, Shrimp Bok Choy and Tumeric Soup) but he still needs his meaty pasta sauce. I decided to make my Nomato Sauce recipe into a Nomato Bolognese.
This recipe is a little more similar to the meaty tomato sauces of my childhood. It’s autoimmune protocol diet comfort food, which is something that I’ve really been missing. It definitely hits the spot.
A tomato-less nomato sauce made of fresh veggies mixed with ground beef to create a not-so-classic Nomato Bolonese. This recipe is allergy friendly (gluten, dairy, shellfish, nut, egg, and soy free) and suits the autoimmune protocol diet.
