Quick and Easy Gluten Free Spaghetti Bolognese!

By 10:58 ,

Midweek I tend to be a little short on time to cook so I tend to rely on a jar! Not the best at times I know, but I mix it up and throw in a load of extra healthy ingredients! One of our favourites is a good old Spag Bol! We tend to use the Dolmio jar for two bolognese sauce as this has no indication of gluten anywhere on the jar, and so far I have been fine! So here is what I do!

You will need:

  • 500g 5% Fat Mince
  • Small Two Person Bolognese Sauce (you could make from scratch)
  • 2 Celery Sticks
  • 1 Small Onion 
  • 1 Red Pepper
  • 1 Flat Mushroom 
  • Gluten Free Spaghetti 
  • Garlic Fry Light
  • Tomato Puree/ Ketchup

Firstly put a good few sprays of garlic Fry Light in a large pan. Add the mince and start to brown then add more fry light once browned as this is what will give the garlic flavour. 

Throw in all the veg that has been diced into small pieces. Allow to cook down. 

Put the jar of sauce in the pan, fill the empty jar with water and add to the pan. Combine them all and allow to simmer. 

Whilst simmering, cook the pasta of your choice. 

A couple of minutes before serving stir in the tomato puree or ketchup just to thicken and richen the tomato flavour. 

It's really as simple as that! It certainly seems to be a firm favourite here! You could always use a larger jar of sauce if you like a more runny, saucy meal, we prefer our Bolognese to be more dry! We also find where we use so much veg this can serve two large meals or four regular ones, so we also have left overs for lunch the next day! 

I would love to know what you add to your bolognese! Everyone seems to have a slightly different recipe! Sometimes I add chilli flakes too!
