Spaghetti bolognese is one of those family go-to dinners. Next time you make it boost the nutrients and flavour by trading white spaghetti for wholemeal and add in some finely diced carrots and zucchini.

Ingredients

Olive oil

2 tsp

Brown onion

1 medium, finely chopped

Carrot(s)

2 medium, finely chopped

Garlic

2 clove(s), crushed

Lean pork mince

350 g

Canned diced tomatoes

1 400g can, (1 x 410g can)

Dried herbs

1 tbs, Italian variety

Zucchini

2 medium, cut into 1cm cubes

Wholemeal pasta, dry

240 g, spaghetti

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook onion and carrot, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes or until soft. Add mince. Cook, stirring with a wooden spoon to break up lumps, for 4 minutes or until browned.
  2. Stir through tomato, herbs and zucchini. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 45 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Meanwhile, cook spaghetti in a large saucepan of boiling salted water following packet instructions, or until just tender. Drain and toss through the bolognese sauce. Serve.

Notes

Tip: You can freeze the sauce for up to 1 month.
