Rainbow Spaghetti Bolognese

I made Spaghetti Bolognese Yesterday and the dietitian in me added extra veggies I am sure its not very Authentic Italian, but very nice!

  • One pack of very lean beef
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • salt
  • Italian herbs, and fresh basil other fresh herbs are also great
  • one carrot diced
  • red, yellow and orange pepper, 1/4 each
  • spinach
  • one box of mushrooms
  • 6 tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon tomato puree
  1. Saute the onion, and garlic in olive oil, with the beef till brown
  2. then add the mushrooms, carrot, herbs, and peppers cook for 5 min
  3. then add spinach, reduce down
  4. add 6 fresh tomatoes and a little tomato puree cover and simmer on a low heat for 30 min

This dish freezes really well, its rich in protein, iron, antioxidants and whole grains.

It was served with wholewheat pasta, lovely.
