This week mum pulled out one of her tried and tested recipes…. from the oven. And I had three portions in one evening; the sign of a good recipe!

So I am gratefully sharing her recipe for all here to enjoy. This recipe is pretty much fool proof and can be altered based on what you have available. It is one of those kitchen sink tried and tested dishes that can be returned to time and time again when you want to cook something fast, nutritious, and filling. This is a comfort meal; Dad asked for it to be on the menu a second time this week. Nothing compares to home-cooked nourishment.

Serving suggestions:

You may serve this traditionally on spaghetti, whole-wheat spaghetti, or gluten-free spaghetti made from quinoa, millet, buckwheat or brown rice. Or you may decide to make your meal lower in processed carbohydrates and serve this Bolognese on spaghetti squash, steamed vegetables (broccoli is a great choice as it soaks the sauce up beautifully) or spiralized vegetables.
