Something everyone in my family loves is a bolognese so if we’re cooking for just us three or quite a few it’s a sure crowd pleaser. I make everything from scratch that goes into it so I can have it for little babies that done round ours and my son loved when weaning!
What goes in it?
- Peppers 3 different colours a yellow, green and red.
- 2 garlic cloves.
- Tinned tomato’s.
- 2 tablespoons of tomato purée.
- Oregano a table spoon.
- Basil a tablespoon.
- Sprinkle of chilli flakes or more if you like spicy.
- Chives a sprinkle or one diced stick.
- Mince 250 grams for saucy or 500 for little sauce or quorn.
- Garlic granules a sprinkle.
- Vegetable oil or 1 cal spray which I use.
Cut all your veg, the smaller the better especially the mushroom if you dice it picky eaters who don’t eat mushroom (but aren’t allergic).Shove everything in pan then oil or spray on top and mix in. Add your mince ( I use 5% as it’s healthier and tastes so much better). Stir and heat on high till browned then drain juices. When juices are drained shove in your tinned tomato’s. Add purée and seasoning. Stir around until fully spread and keep on high stirring every few minutes. If you’re making pasta with this the time to do is now and when then pastas done the mince is too! The mince and sauce will combine and everything will mix nicely and it should be done in ten minutes. Simply serve and anything you don’t eat can be frozen and defrosted and reheated later! Perfect way to get toddlers to eat there vegetables as they can’t see the coloured veg as well covered in a tomatoey sauce! The meal is quite cheep and all veg and mince can be brought for about a fiver in aldi except the spices but they’re cheep enough and last many different meals!
