Best Spaghetti Bolognese Recipe | Slimming Friendly

Best Spaghetti Bolognese

I absolutely love Spaghetti Bolognese, it is such a simple dish and so full of flavour. My mum used to cook it all the time when I was growing up and I would always be so excited when I knew it was being prepared.

Everyone has their own recipe, so I thought I would share mine! This is my slimming friendly spaghetti bolognese recipe that I cook every time.

The beauty of this dish is that you can throw in any veggies that you have in the house. I always use carrots and mushrooms, but you can leave them out if you don't like them.

This bolognese recipe makes up a pretty big batch, which means there are plenty of leftovers that can be used the following days.

I love having it either in a wrap with some cheese or on some toast with melted cheese on top.
