Spaghetti Bolognese Lasagne | Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

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 to know in the blurb!

Can’t choose between a classic Spaghetti Bolognese or a comforting Lasagne? With this delicious Spaghetti Bolognese Lasagne, you don’t need to!

We’ve used lean beef mince to keep the calories low, but you still get the rich, savoury sauce and the recognisable Italian flavours you expect. There’s no need to reach for the jar of sugary, ready-made tomato sauce anymore with this simple recipe made with wholesome ingredients and no hidden nasties.

When you’re grating cheese, we recommend trying a fine grater. It takes a little longer but you’ll be surprised just how much further it goes! It also melts quicker so it feels like you get way more gooey melty cheese on top of your Spaghetti Bolognese Lasagne. You can use it for chocolate, fruit zests and pretty much anything you’d use a standard grater for, so we think it’s a worthwhile investment.

Serve this Italian showstopper with your favourite sides for a quick weeknight dinner that the whole family will love!

If you’re cooking for a gluten free diet, opt for Henderson’s Relish instead of standard Worcestershire sauce.

    HollyTuesday 18th May 2021

I live on my own and find some of the recipes difficult to adapt .. any ideas

    HollyThursday 20th May 2021

    Hey Elaine, if you scroll down to the recipe card at the bottom of the page there are a set of arrows next to serving size where you can alter the servings up or down. Rather than trying to scale it down to 1 serving you could try halving the servings for the recipe so in this case the original recipe serves 6 so scale it down to 3 and freeze the extra portions that way you will have a set of homemade ready meals ready to go and less cooking to do! Hope that helps.
