How to Make Healthy Spaghetti Bolognese on a Low Budget

Dec 24, 2007
Spaghetti Bolognese is certainly a lot easier to make than it looks, and believe it or not you do not need an abundance of fancy ingredients. It is an authentic Italian dish and is a delicious favorite for many, and luckily it really is so easy to make.

To make a fantastic Bolognese sauce you will first need some mince. The mince should be cooked in a pan until brown; remember to keep stirring it vigorously to avoid it sticking. It is then a good idea to drain the fat off the mince to ensure you meal is healthy and avoid it being too greasy when served. In order to give your sauce lots of flavor and vitamins, vegetables should be added. Chopped onions complement the mince perfectly and should be placed in the pan soon after the mince has browned. A juicy red or green pepper should also be chopped and placed in, this provides the dish with lots of color and little bit of spice.

When it comes to the tomato sauce, you need not use an expensive jar or packet of sauce. A ready made sauce usually has a high salt or often sugar content which makes your meal a lot less healthy than it could potentially be. A simple and cheap jar of chopped tomatoes is just as tasty as a branded sauce, by using one ingredient like this you can keep track of what you are actually eating. Some tomato puree gives the sauce a thicker consistency. Tomatoes have a great number of health boosting properties and they can be a delicious accompaniment to many meals.

While your sauce is simmering, place some spaghetti in a pot of boiling water. Aim to use whole-wheat spaghetti and this is full of fiber, which is good for your digestive system. Once the spaghetti is (soft with a slight bite), drain out the water with a colander and serve your tasty meal onto a plate.

As you can see making Spaghetti Bolognese could not be healthier or cheaper and it certainly is an appetizing dish to come home to after a long day at work. It is also so simple to make and takes very little time. Why not try adding different types of vegetables and herbs to your specifications to create different textures and flavors each time?
