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 👍

Everyone has their own version, but this is mine. I’ve adapted it over the years, and more recently to include some extra veg.

Not only does it bulk it out, making the meat go further (gotta love a thrifty meal!) but it’s also an excellent way of sneaking some extra speed food into your meal, and into your kids!

This Syn Free Spaghetti Bolognese reheats really well, can be frozen, or turned into a totally different meal.

Why not top it with mashed potato and carrot, top with some Healthy Extra A Parmesan cheese or mozzarella and have an Italian Cottage Pie? It’s one of my absolute favourite leftover meals!

The Mince

This post contains affiliate links. Find out what this means.

For the mince, I’d urge you to get hold of our Protein Food Shop hampers. They’re packed full of the BEST quality meat we’ve ever come across from an online butcher. The hamper is incredible value for money, working out FAR cheaper than the supermarket.

The mince is lovely, and doesn’t come out of the pack in a block that’s difficult to break up like mince from some other online meat suppliers.


We also have a few other exclusive hamper deals available, so it’s well worth checking them out.

    1. Hi Claire
      It really needs to be done on the hob so you can reduce it sufficiently for a rich, thick sauce. You won’t achieve the same result in the slow cooker. 🙂
