Cheesecake Factory Wheat Pasta With Mushroom Bolognese

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.


  • 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
  • 4 ounces mushrooms, diced to 1/4-inch thickness
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • 2 ounces Madeira wine
  • 10 ounces marinara sauce
  • 1 ounce margarine (or equivalent butter substitute)
  • 1 ounce low fat or fat free Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 teaspoons parsley, chopped


  1. In a saute pan over medium-high heat, bring olive oil to a light sizzle.
  2. Add carrots and onions; cook until heated through and halfway cooked, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Add mushrooms; toss to incorporate.
  4. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Cook until vegetables are tender, about 2 to 3 minutes more.
  6. When finished cooking, liquids will be cooked off and mushroom texture will appear to be slightly dry.
  7. Add garlic and thyme; toss to incorporate.
  8. Pour Madeira wine down sides of pan.
  9. Add marinara sauce; stir to incorporate.
  10. Cook until sauce is heated through.
  11. Add margarine (or equivalent butter substitute); quickly stir to incorporate.
  12. Add cooked wheat pasta to pan; do not toss.
  13. Sprinkle 1/2 ounce low fat or fat free Parmesan cheese over pasta; toss to incorporate until ingredients are thoroughly combined and pasta is evenly coated with sauce.
  14. Sprinkle remaining Parmesan cheese and parsley evenly over pasta.
  15. Serve immediately.
