This recipe makes enough for our family (2 kiddies & 2 adults), with enough to freeze for another meal the following night! It also freezes really well! There are many other uses for the bolognaise mince too….
Suggestions:
  1. It’s great between fresh pasta sheets & a bechemal sauce for a healthy lasagne
  2. Serve on top of toast for a quick & easy meal
  3. Use on a toasted sandwich, with cheese!
  4. Add mince to a jacket potato with grated cheese, sour cream & extra chives
I’m sure there are many other ways to enjoy it too, if you have any ideas, we’d love to hear!
