A Family Favourite.
This is a great Dish to Cook for the whole Family, especially Kids that are growing fast.
If by chance you have any left-over Bolognese, use as a filling in a Toasted Sandwich. Simply delicious and tasty, great for hungry Kids when they get Home from School.
Experiment with different types of Pasta: Spaghetti, Penne, Spiral or Animal shaped Pasta for little Kids. This is a great idea for Grand-parents when cooking a Meal for small Grand-children.
The same applies to Mince: Chicken, Pork or Beef can be used in this Dish.
- 500g-600g Pork Mince
- 2 Carrot, diced small
- 2 medium Onions, sliced then chopped small
- 1 cup Frozen Peas and Corn
- 2 Cloves Garlic, crushed
- 2 tablespoons Tomato Paste
- 400g Tin Crushed Tomatoes
- 1 tablespoon fresh Parsley, chopped
- 1 tablespoon fresh Thyme, chopped
- 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
- Parmesan, sliced for topping
- 250g Gluten Free Spiral Pasta
- Salt and cracked Peppercorn, for seasoning
Add 1 tablespoon of Oil to a medium heated Pan and brown the Mince well.
Once Mince is browned add the Carrots, Onion, fresh Herbs and Garlic, cook for a few minutes, keep stirring.
Empty the Tin of Tomatoes into the Pan along with the Tomato Paste, Peas and Corn. Season to taste with Salt and cracked Peppercorns.

Cook the Gluten Free Spiral Pasta in salted water for about 9-10 minutes.
