Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Add 10 cups water and 2 tsp salt in a large pot. (NOTE: Use same for 4 ppl.) Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, finely chop 1 tbsp oregano leaves (dbl for 4 ppl). Grate zucchini. Peel, then mince or grate garlic.


Add rigatoni to the pot of boiling water. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 10-12 min.


While rigatoni cooks, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 3-4 min. Add pork, garlic and oregano. Cook, breaking up pork into smaller pieces, until no pink remains, 4-5 min.**


When rigatoni is tender, reserve 1/4 cup pasta water (dbl for 4 ppl), then drain and return to the same pot. Set aside, off heat.


When the pork is done, add reserved pasta water, zucchini, crushed tomatoes, broth concentrate and 2 tbsp milk (dbl for 4 ppl) to the pan. Season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium. Simmer, until sauce slightly thickens, 6-8 min. Add spinach and stir, until wilted, 1-2 min.


Add sauce and 2 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) to the pot with rigatoni. Heat the pot over medium heat and stir, until rigatoni is coated, 2-3 min. Season with salt and pepper. Divide Bolognese between bowls and sprinkle over Parmesan.
