Super Filling Meat Free Bolognese



I want to eat more meat free meals in 2017!  We have had this before and you really don’t miss the meat 🙂 I serve it with rigatoni as that is my fave pasta but of course would work with any!

Enjoy 🙂

You will need: 

  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 carrots, grated
  • 2 tsp lazy garlic

  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp basil

  • 400ml water
  • 1 tsbp sugar

Let’s Cook it!
