The dish formerly know as Spaghetti Sauce.

August 15, 2011 in Main Dishes

It used to be called Spaghetti Sauce.

But then we stopped eating spaghetti.

Now, we like to call it Italian Chili.

And we like to eat it a lot.

Italian Chili is incredibly versitle and ours is never the same from one week to the next. It is a great way to use up your veggies, or better yet, to get veggies into your kids.

If you dice everything really small (smaller than shown) they will have no idea what goodness you have hidden!

This batch has:

1 yellow squash

3 japanese eggplant

2 small yellow onions

5-10 cloves diced fresh garlic

Approx. 6 large crimini mushrooms

2 lbs grassfed beef

2 large cans diced tomatoes with basil

Lots of fresh Basil

Sea Salt


First I sautee all the veggies in a tablespoon of ghee, then I add and brown the ground beef, pour in the tomatoes, season to taste and simmer until you we are ready to dig in. Makes for amazing leftovers!

Eating Healthy does not have to be complicated!

(Shane came up with the name Italian Chili. See, I told you I would give you full credit, Shane.)
