Create the Cheesecake Factory's delicious mushroom bolognese at home with this simple Cheesecake Factory copycat recipe, using wheat pasta for a lower carb option. Also, bolognese can still be hearty and filling without the addition of meat.

Serves: 8

Ingredients
  • 6 ounces whole wheat spaghetti, cooked al dente, drained and kept warm
  • 2 ounces olive oil
  • 1 ounce carrots, minced
  • 1 ounce yellow onion, diced to 1/4-inch thickness

Instructions

  9. Add marinara sauce; stir to incorporate.
