Ingredients

  • 1 large onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 450-500g lean mince meat (less than 5% fat)
  • 1 red pepper
  • 2 tins of chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp mixed herbs
  • 2 courgettes

Method

  1. Spray a large pot with low calorie cooking spray and place over a high heat.

  2. Dice the onion and mince the garlic and fry for 1-2 minutes.

  3. Add the mince meat and cook through.

  4. Add the 2 tins of chopped tomatoes.

  5. Roughly chop the peppers and add.

  6. Add 2 heaped tablespoons of mixed herbs.

  7. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour (the longer the better)

  8. Season to taste adding more herbs/salt/pepper as needed.

  9. Once ready to eat spiralize the courgette and toss it into the bolognese for no longer than 1-2 minutes to keep its “Al Dente” texture – Note: if planning on freezing the bolognese only add the courgetti to the bolognese that you are going to serve.
