Recipe: Spaghetti Bolognaise

Spaghetti Bolognaise is a favourite meal of mine and while this one may not be traditional, it is tasty and healthy



  • Extra lean minced beef
  • 2 carrots, grated
  • Diced shallots
  • 1 pepper, diced
  • Chopped tinned tomatoes
  • Beef oxo cube
  • Wholemeal pasta


  • Brown the mince in a frying pan with the shallots
  • When all the mince is browned, drain off any excess fat
  • Add the peppers, carrots, tomatoes and oxo cube
  • Stir well and simmer for 40 minutes. If the sauce becomes too dry add a little boiled water from the kettle.
  • Meanwhile cook some wholemeal spaghetti until al dente, drain and serve.

I served this with a sprinkle of parmesan (28g), a small square of foccacia and some microwaved sugarsnap peas

I always make a double portion of this as it freezes brilliantly!
