Protein Pasta Bolognese

This beautiful Italian dish is worldwide known for its rich salty tomato flavor and beautiful color that brightness up every table. I like to add some wine for extra Italian zing, but you can replace it with beef broth or even water. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese and enjoy!

Serves: 5

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 30 minutes


1 lb penne pasta

10 oz lean ground beef

1 x 40 gram scoop Blackbelt WPC Plain Protein Powder

1 large red onion, finely chopped

2 medium-sized tomato, peeled and roughly chopped

1 tbsp tomato paste, sugar-free

¼ tsp dried rosemary, ground

½ tsp dried oregano, ground

3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

1 tsp sea salt

1 tsp brown sugar

A handful of fresh parsley, finely chopped

2 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated


Cook the pasta using package instructions. Drain well and set aside.

Preheat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and stir-fry for 4-5 minutes, or until translucent. Add beef, tomatoes, and tomato paste. Stir all well and cook for 10 minutes, stirring constantly.

Now, add Blackbelt WPC Plain Protein Powder, pasta, wine, rosemary, oregano, brown sugar, salt, and one cup of water. Give it a good stir and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and continue to cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally.


Remove from the heat and transfer to a serving dish. Sprinkle with fresh parsley and grated Parmesan cheese.
