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

lean pork mince

200 g

veal mince

200 g

canned chopped tomato with herbs

410 g, (1x410g can) basil and garlic variety

zucchini

2 medium, cut into 1cm cubes

dry wholemeal pasta

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 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: If you can’t find basil & garlic diced tomatoes, use any diced tomatoes with herbs. You can freeze the sauce for up to 1 month.
