Spaghetti Bolognese is is a hit for everyone in our home. We all love it and for something that is so easy to cook the flavour is amazing. Ben and myself use to have competitions on who could cook the best version then one day Ben added all his secret ingredients (of which I hope he gives me for this recipe post) and what I think is the star of the show, beef ribs and he nailed it! And the longer you cook, the better it will be! I love to cook a big pot and freeze the leftovers for a busy day or for Ben’s lunches throughout the week.
I’m a huge fan of leek and I’m a huge fan of soup. The sweetness it brings to roast vegetables is to die for and works very well alongside chicken and mushrooms in a winter warming pie. With the leek in this weeks delivery I though I might try something I was yet to cook, leek and potato soup. Perfect of lunches, easy to freeze and after a hard days work, would be lovely to come home to with a slice of toasted sourdough with melted butter.
I had planned to buy mince to make my lasagna the other week but mummy brain conquered and I forgot to grab some. With a cranky toddler who didn’t want to leave the house I decided I would roll with it, and instead make my usual lasagna but packed with more vegetables than usual. After pureeing the veggie ‘bolognese’ and layering it in the lasagna, my children were none the wiser that it was meatless – and it turned out tasty too, so it was a win all round.
