Chef's Tip

  • Our simple vegetarian Bolognese recipe is even easier with a few useful tips. If you don’t have time to make the sauce from scratch look out for tomato sauces with added vegetables or add some grated carrot and frozen peas to boost your veggie intake! If you’ve got to prepare a kids menu, you can always puree the sauce and then add the mince.
  • As our mince is vegan, this recipe can be made into a vegan option by simply substituting the spaghetti and cheese with vegan alternatives.
