You all know I have a slight obsession with bolognese. I play it off like its just something I make for the kids, but that is actually a big fat lie. I love nothing better than sitting down to a bowl of wholegrain spaghetti and homemade bolognese, and if I happen to put some cheese on top, now that right there could be the worlds most perfect meal.

Since starting this clean eating lifestyle we have really cut back on the amount of red meat we eat. We eat a lot of turkey, lentils and chicken but every now and then you just cant beat a beefy bolognese. When I do buy beef, I always try and by the best quality I can. I like it to be organic and from grass fed cows if possible. Ocado stock a couple of great grass fed meat companies so that is what I usually use.
This recipe will serve 4, but chuck in a tin of lentils and it will stretch to 6. It is hearty and wholesome and the kids don’t even notice the hidden veggies inside!
Looking for clean tinned tomoatoes? Mr Organic are my favourite brand of chopped tomatoes. No added nasties and no BPA in the tin!
