Eat Your Veggies Pasta

Sonny's Farm grass-fed wagyu cross beef pasta

Often when feeding children, parents need to find creative ways to incorporate vegetables into mealtime in appetizing ways. A hearty, vegetable-packed, meaty bolognaise sauce can be an excellent source of nutrition and a family favorite. Grass-fed ground beef adds rich umami flavors, vitamin E, Vitamin B12 and B6, Selenium, Iron, Zinc, and antioxidants to this simple weeknight meal. 



1 lb. of ground beef

1 large onion, diced 

2-3 zucchinis, trimmed and grated 

1 tomato, diced 

2 cloves of garlic, minced 

3 cups of tomato sauce 

1 tablespoon of olive oil 

1 bunch of fresh oregano 

Salt and pepper to taste

16 oz of spaghetti or pasta of your choice 


  1. Bring a large stockpot of salted water to a boil and cook the pasta according to the package’s directions, or recipe instructions if using fresh, homemade pasta. 
  2. While the water is coming to a boil, cook the beef and diced onion in the olive oil on medium-high heat in a sauté pan until the onions are translucent and the beef is almost cooked through. 
  3. Add garlic and torn oregano leaves, allowing the mixture to cook until the leaves are slightly wilted. 
  4. Add the remaining vegetables and the pasta sauce, cover, and turn the heat to low. 
  5. When the pasta sauce is heated through, add the drained pasta and stir or toss the pasta until thoroughly coated. 
  6. Serve the pasta warm, topped with freshly grated parmesan or asiago cheese.
