SUPER SPEEDY BOLOGNESE

Every house has a favourite dinner.  One that pleases all the family , that is super quick and easy and tastes delicious!.

Having been a target member at slimming world and then having my third daughter Nila, I have been back on the plan for a few weeks now and have been getting stuck in cooking up some of my favourite recipes.


My super speedy bolognese is completely syn free and is the best bolognese I have ever tasted -  i'm not blowing my own trumpet, honestly!.It is packed with veg and speed food , to help your weight loss and also fills you up and really does hit the spot :)

Ingredients

250g Lean Beef Mince- I use half a pack of 500g as I pack the bad boy with as much veg as possible!
Two peppers - I normally go for whichever ones I have in the fridge
One red onion and one white
One tin of passata
One tablespoon of  tomatoe purée
Two garlic cloves
Two tablespoons of mixed herbs
Dash of Worcester sauce
Handful of spinach
Half a punnet of mushrooms
Two courgettes
Frylight- which ever flavour tickles your fancy :) / I normally go with the garlic one for a bolognese
Salt and pepper


Let’s Get Cooking


Start off by frying your pan with fry light and adding your onions and garlic to soften. Then add your mince. I like to do it this way as the mince really locks in the onions and garlic.

Then add the peppers and courgettes as these take a little longer than the rest of the veggies . Leave them on a low heat for about ten minutes then add the rest of your veg to the pan and let it all soften down. Add a little more frylight if needed .

 Now is the time to add your mixed herbs, a little salt and pepper and Worcester sauce. Give it a stir and let it fry off for a further 5 minutes and then add your passata , your tomato purée and fill your passata carton or jar 3/4 full with water and add that to your pan. Give it a big stir and let it simmer on low for 20 minutes .

This is when I put my spaghetti on- usually takes around 20-25 minutes so I stick it on now so it will be ready just in time :)

When 20 minutes is up , add a handful of spinach - I have a big bag of frozen spinach which I add to meals like this. Takes 5 minutes to wilt down and doesn’t go off in the freezer . I let that wilt down while I get the plates and cutlery out and set up the table .

That’s it ! That is your super speedy bolognese ready to devour. Honestly,this is the most tastiest meal ever and so simple to make . It feeds a family of 4 plus a little 10 month old baby size portion :) and is full of so much flavour.



The girls absolutely love it and it is a firm favourite and we have it every week without fail. To add a little extra to the dish , we sometimes sprinkle a little cheese on and serve with a side of garlic bread .
