I don’t know about you lot, but I find the price of Slimming World friendly minced beef INFURIATING. Why am I paying nearly £5 for 500g of mince from the supermarket?!
As I am saving for other, more important things than mince meat, I decided that I would have to think of a way to bulk out my bolognese.
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍
SoI decided to try and increase the portions by adding a bog standard, 30p can of baked beans
I know it sounds like a bit of a weird bolognese/chilli hybrid, but this Syn Free Baked Bean Bolognese really is delicious and purse-friendly. Its syn free and super speedy- whats not to love?
Adding the baked beans along with plenty of speed food meant that half of my 400g portion of mince beef went from making 2 plates of food, to 4 plates!
A great way to keep your belly and bank account full.
This recipe for Syn Free Baked Bean Bolognese uses Cirio Chopped Tomatoes and Cirio Tomato Puree and Cirio Passata, as they are not as watery as some other brands, and to make an Italian dish like Bolognese you really do need to use authentic Italian tomatoes.
