Bolognese Sauce

Easy Bolognese Sauce Recipe – I love my thermomix – I really do!!!  Usually when I make spaghetti bolognese I do it the way I have always done it – on a stove, chopping onions, stirring, waiting….

Tonight I have a babysitter coming to look after the kids, so wanted dinner all ready for me to be able to walk out the door.

Spaghetti bolognese is a meal that always pleases my kids, so I was really happy to find a quicker way of cooking it.  I made it this morning in between school lunches and brushing teeth – it was fantastic!

So great knowing dinner is cooked and I hardly had to lift a finger.

I had made a bolognese sauce in the thermomix once before when I first got it, and must say that I wasn’t too impressed.  I think it is because I basically just did it the stove-top way.

Today I didn’t use a jar of pasta sauce that I usually do, nor did I use canned tomatoes.  I used lots of fresh veggies, and it tastes wonderful!  I really hope you try this recipe.
