15 minute spaghetti bolognaise from scratch

 A quick recipe for you all to try.  If you try a jar version after having this all you will taste is salt. This one has more taste and less added junk.

Tonight's tea was spaghetti bolognaise I made this in 15 minutes and cooked it from scratch.


Quorn  (just over half a bag on offer at Asda)
Smartprice chopped tomatoes
1 tsp of mixed herbs (smartprice)
a squirt of tomato ketchup
1 onion chopped
a little oil to soften onion
salt and pepper
spaghetti (enough for two adults and three lil ones)


1) chop onion
2)place onion in a saucepan with herbs and a little salt and pepper and soften with a little oil.
3)Add to pan containing the above the quorn, tin of chopped tomatoes and squirt of ketchup.
4) boil up and then simmer for 10-15 minutes.
5) meanwhile in a separate pan place spaghetti and boiling water, boil up and then simmer for 10 mins.

Really easy and quick to make.  If you have more time or wanted to bulk it out to feed more you could add chopped peppers, butter beans or lentils.

Have fun
