The ultimate family favourite, spaghetti Bolognese is something I serve probably once a week. It is the perfect quick weekday meal and freezes brilliantly. Get batching and fill that freezer.

  1. Hello, well I have just made my 1st recipe from your page. I am my own so I started with a favourite of mine the Bolognese. So it’s “1 for tonight and 3 for the freezer” for me. Mind you it looks like it might be more than 3 for the freezer as the amount in the pot is huge!!! Tastes delicious and not sweet like the shop bought jars.

  2. I am loving your recipes. I made 6 x 2 portions. I tweaked the recipe and added some chilli flakes and an oxo cube. This is the first time I’ve ever made bolognese from scratch and it was delicious. Thank you.
