I’ve been working on a good quick Spaghetti Bolognese recipe requested for my meal plans for men page; plus Baby G is currently loving mince and pasta. It is great fun seeing him with a bright red tomato smeared face and discovering spaghetti he has hidden up his nose. He does make meal times fun!
Here’s my recipe and to make it quick you really need to use steak mince or the meat will be chewy and tough.
2 tsp olive oil
1 onion chopped
1 clove garlic crushed
2 tsp mixed herbs
1 tsp oregano
ground black pepper
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
500g steak mince
2 tsp tomato puree
1 tub passata
(optional – 1 glass red wine)
75g spaghetti per person
- Heat oil in a large frying pan, add all ingredients except the passata and cook for roughly 3-5 mins or until soft.
- Add steak mince and fry until browned.
- Add passata (wine if using) to frying pan, simmer for 15-20 mins.
Serve with spaghetti and a green salad.
Added 5 A Day:
Grate a carrot into the mixture at stage 3 with the passata.
Ways to Make this Recipe Quicker:
Use 4 spring onions instead of a chopped onion. Peeling and chopping a whole white onion is fiddly, I often use spring onions as they are very quick to prepare.
