Courgetti spaghetti bolognese

Courgetti spaghetti bolognese

You can use conventional spaghetti here if you like but having courgetti can really help bump up the nutrient density of this meal. You just need to buy a spiraliser which is very inexpensive and wind the courgette through it.

You can also purchase pre-made courgetti from stores like Marks and Spencer’s. Once you have your courgetti, you can throw it into your sauce where it will warm up and soften – making it easy to eat.


1 large onion

1 bulb of garlic

2 heap tablespoons of cumin

1 x 280g jar of sun dried tomatoes with the oil

1 x 680g jar of passata

1 cinnamon stick

500 grams of lean beef mince


Blitz the onion and garlic cloves in a food processor with 1/2 a cup of water until you have a paste. With the cumin, add this to a pan on a low heat and warm through. To this, add the mince and mix until browned. Blend the sun dried tomatoes together with the passata until it’s a smooth paste. Add this to the mince and mix well. Add a cinnamon stick, some salt and pepper and let it cook on a low heat for 90 minutes. By cooking the mince for 90 minutes it falls apart even further, making it into a rich sauce requiring minimal chewing. Any extra can be frozen and used another time.
