Healthy spaghetti bolognese – Recipe 1


Use lean mince (about 4% fat or less) and whole wheat pasta to enjoy a healthy bolognese that you can feel 100% good about.

1 tbsp olive oil
200g/7oz lean beef mince
1 onion, finely chopped
4 large mushrooms, sliced
1 carrot, grated
1 400g/14oz tin tomatoes, chopped
230ml/8fl oz vegetable stock
2 tbsp tomato purée
½ tsp Worcestershire sauce
½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
300g/10½oz whole wheat spaghetti
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the mince and the onion and fry for five minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mince is browned and the onions softened.

Add mushrooms and carrot, cook for around one minute, then add tinned tomatoes, vegetable stock, tomato purée, Worcestershire sauce and freshly ground black pepper. Stir well and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to simmer for 15-20 minutes, until the sauce has thickened.

Place the wholemeal spaghetti in a deep saucepan full of salted boiling water and cook according to packet instructions, then drain.

To serve, divide the cooked spaghetti between four dishes, spoon equal portions of Bolognese sauce over each and sprinkle with parsley.
