Our Bolognese can use beef or lamb mince and is a great blend of protein and carbohydrate which isn't hard on the wallet either. We've added inexpensive, storecupboard ingredients such as ketchup and tobasco for an extra kick without extra expense.
Time to prepare:
Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions, drain and set aside.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large non-stick pan and brown the mince and onion for 5 minutes. Add the beans, stock, Tabasco or chilli sauce, ketchup and seasoning.
Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for a further 20 minutes. Stir in the cooked pasta.
Transfer to two heatproof dishes, sprinkle over the cheese and serve immediately, or alternatively, pop under a preheated grill and heat until the cheese melts.
Serve with garlic or ciabatta bread and a crisp salad.
