Here’s a hot tip: you can enjoy the robust, soul-soothing goodness of bolognese even if you’re shying away from carb-heavy pasta right now. Spoon the sauce into zucchini boats instead, blanketed with gooey, melted mozzarella, rendered bubbling and crispy on top. The zucchini holds up well to the hearty sauce, and its mild, ever so slightly sweet flavour pairs nicely with the pork, tomato, and spices. Serve it with a fresh curly leaf salad on the side.

Preparation

Roast the zucchini
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise. With a spoon, carefully scoop out the flesh from the centre of each zucchini half; roughly chop the flesh. Lay out the zucchini halves cut-sides up on a lined sheet pan and drizzle with oil, season with ⅓ of the spice blend and S&P. Bake in the oven, 6 to 8 minutes, until the zucchini have started to soften.

Cook the pork
While the zucchini roasts, in a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the mirepoix and cook, 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables begin to soften; season with ½ the remaining spice blend and S&P. Add the ground pork* and cook, breaking the pork with the back of your spoon, 4 to 6 minutes, until cooked through; season with S&P to taste.

Prepare the bolognese
To the pan of pork, add the chopped zucchini flesh, tomato sauce, demi-glace and ¼ cup water (double for 4 portions); season with the remaining spice blend and S&P to taste. Cook, stirring frequently, 4 to 6 minutes (6 to 8 minutes for 4 portions), until thickened.

Assemble & bake the zucchini boats
Divide the pork bolognese between the partially cooked zucchini halves and top with the mozzarella. Bake in the oven, 6 to 8 minutes, until the zucchini is cooked through and the cheese has melted. If desired, switch the oven to broil and cook, 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown.

Make the salad
While the zucchini boats cook, roughly chop the lettuce, discarding the root end. In a large bowl, combine the lettuce, beets and as much of the vinaigrette as you’d like; season with S&P to taste. Toss to combine thoroughly.
