5 – Spaghetti Bolognese Makes 4 Servings
Whenever I make pasta for myself, I always cook an extra box and make this recipe for my dogs. Any time I can make something for myself and for them, I do—since it’s a big time saver. In this dog-friendly recipe, I use gluten-free quinoa pasta, which provides significantly more protein than traditional wheat pastas, and is a good alternative for dogs who have a slight sensitivity to wheat.
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 pounds ground beef
1 cup uncooked quinoa pasta
1/4 cup (2 ounces) chopped chicken liver
2/3 cup diced zucchini
1 In a large sauté pan, heat the oil over medium-low heat. Add the beef and cook until it is browned. Drain any excess fat and set it aside to cool.
2 Prepare the pasta as directed on the package. Drain and set it aside to cool. You should have about 2 cups of cooked pasta.
3 Puree the zucchini in a food processor. You should have about 1/4 cup of zucchini puree.
To Make One Serving
