AD | Our Favourite Family Meal

Meat is a huge part of our diet. Each day we try to vary the type of meat we use in our evening meal. A simple Spaghetti Bolognese is a firm favourite in our house. My basic recipe doesn't tend to vary, but I try to use recipes that can be flexible to throw in other bits to prevent any food waste.

Spaghetti Bolognese

5% fat Beef Mince - (Tesco 750g £3.79 / half pack used)
1 can of chopped tomatoes - (Tesco 28p)
1 tbsp Tomato Puree - (Tesco 50p)
1 heaped tsp of garlic paste - (Tesco £1 per jar)
Schwartz mix - (Tesco 50p)
Dried Spaghetti - (Tesco 20p)

1 Carrot (grated) - (Tesco 6p)
6 Mushrooms (sliced) - (Tesco 95p per pack)
1 Onion (chopped) - (Tesco 10p)

Cheddar (grated) to serve!

All that for less than a fiver 😊

Did you know?
Beef provides eight essential vitamins and minerals that support good health and well-being (Niacin, vitamins B6 and B12, riboflavin, plus iron, zinc, potassium and phosphorus). It is so important to me that I'm providing my children with a nutritional balanced diet.
