The essential Italian pasta sauce is as popular as ever and it's always worth making double and freezing half for a rainy day

  •     Low calorie cooking spray
  •     500g lean beef mince (less than 5% fat) or Quorn mince for a meat-free version
  •     1 onion, roughly chopped
  •     1 large carrot, peeled and diced
  •     3 celery sticks, roughly chopped
  •     4 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  •     400g can chopped tomatoes
  •     4 tbsp tomato purée
  •     500g passata
  •     1 tsp dried mixed herbs
  •     Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  •     Small handful of finely chopped fresh parsley, to garnish


    Spray a large non-stick frying pan with low calorie cooking spray and place over a high heat

    Add the mince and stir-fry for 2 minutes or until browned, then add the onion, carrot, celery and garlic and stir-fry for 1 minute

    Add the chopped tomatoes, tomato purée, passata and dried herbs, season well and cook over a medium heat for 12-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

    Stir the bolognese into your favourite pasta and serve hot, with parsley scattered over.

Tip: Extra-lean turkey mince or extra-lean pork mince would both work well instead of the beef.
