A healthy turn on a bolognaise pasta sauce. Healthy & great for getting kids to eat vegetables


  • 2 large carrots, peeled and chunkily chopped
  • 1 yellow pepper, deseeded and chunkily chopped
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and chunkily chopped
  • 2 large courgettes, chunkily chopped
  • 3/4 punnet closed cup mushrooms, quartered
  • 1 large red onion, chunkily chopped
  • 1 small punnet baby plum tomatoes, halved
  • 500g turkey mince
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1tbsp tomato puree
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 2tsp sherry vinegar
  • 2tsp bovril
  • pinch of sugar
  • small splash worcestershire sauce
  • seasoning
  • Pasta to serve


  • STEP 1
    Add the onions to a pan and saute in a little spray oil for 5 mins. add the peppers and cook until tender. Add to a saucepan.
  • STEP 2
    Fry the remaining veggies in a little spray oil until starting to get tender but only just. Add to the onions and peppers.
  • STEP 3
    Fry the turkey mince in a little spray oil until cooked. Add to the veggies and put onto a medium heat Add the tomatoes, tinned tomatoes, sherry vinegar, tomato puree, pinch of sugar bovril, thyme, worcestershire and season. Leave to cook for 15 mins, storring occasionally.
  • STEP 4
    Taste for seasoning. It is supposed to have a depth of flavour from the bovril but tangy from the vinegar. If it is too bland add a little more bovril and vinegar. If it is too vinegary, add a little more sugar. Adjust to your own tastes. I like mine quite tangy.
  • STEP 5
    Leave to cook for another 10 mins or so. You want a decent amount of juice to account for the pasta being mixed in. I find conchigli works well. Just boil and mix into the sauce once cooked. Good served witha nice peppery side salad.
