Mushroom Bolognese

Our meatless version of Mushroom Bolognese is a delicious option if you're trying to cut back on your meat consumption. The secret to making this delicious meatless Bolognese is to use a several varieties of mushrooms. The mushrooms give the sauce a meaty texture and rich delicious flavor. We served it with chickpea pasta but it's also delicious over zucchini or butternut squash noodles.
