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.

Cook Time : 25 minutes
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
