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.
