A Meal I Can’t Live Without

There are some meals you love, that you will always come back to. Meals that when you are feeling a bit rubbish will cheer you up. That simply the smell of makes you feel better. Meals which in the cooking of them  make you feel more human. Spaghetti bolognese is that meal for me. My perfect, heavenly meal. The meal I would choose as my last meal should I be on death row. I try not to make it too often so as not to get bored of it. That would be devastating. When I do though, I always make a big vat of it and freeze it in batches, for days when I need cheering up.

Also comforting is making it in my mum’s le creuset. I love this kind of pan. I love that you can use it on the hob and also in the oven. This pan is the perfect size and shape for making all kind of things from bolognese, to stews to casseroles.

There are a million and one recipes for spaghetti bolognese out there. The one I use is from my favourite cookbook, aptly named ‘The Perfect Cookbook’.

Unfortunately it is an Australian cookbook (less unfortunate if you live in Aus) which means it is quite hard to find in the UK. Though it is on Amazon but very few of them, ranging in price dramatically. However, if you can get hold of it there are so many superb recipes that always work, from the lemon delicious pudding to the anzac biscuits to bolognese sauce and stews.

To make this meal healthier, I use a very small amount of oil just to coat the pan before steaming the veg instead of frying. This keeps the fat content down. I also use a lot more vegetables. I add an extra onion and carrot, put in a pepper and some mushrooms, perhaps add a courgette. So whilst not a traditional bolognese sauce it helps me on my way to my five-a-day. Always good.

What is your favourite meal? What do you add to a bolognese?
