Mushroom and Beef Spag Bol

If you are trying to cut down your meat intake, then why not mix chopped mushroom to the mince. 50/50 blend would work very well adding the lovely mushroom flavour to the bolognese while reducing the meat intake but not totally removing the goodness of meat.    

Prep time: 10 minutes 
Cook Time : 25 minutes
Serves: 6


375g Pure South Beef Mince
375g Portabello Mushrooms, chopped in Food Processor   
1 packet or jar of sauce for Spag Bol 
1 packet spaghetti 
2 tbsp olive oil + more for the spaghetti 


  1. Chop mushrooms in a food processor to make them resemble mince. 
  2. Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and mince, cook, stirring for 3-4 minutes until the mince change colour.  Mix in the sauce for spag bol. Cover the pan and lower heat. Simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti according to the packet instructions. Drain, drizzle a little olive oil to prevent sticking. 
  4. Serve Bolognese sauce over spaghetti.

Serving suggestion: Top with some parmesan cheese and chopped parsley. A simple green salad will go with it nicely.
