BBC’s Healthy Spaghetti Bolognese.
A friend passed along this “healthy” Bolognese recipe from BBC and I convinced Gareth to cook it for me on Valentine’s Day. Of course, he did an amazing job and it was so yummy, in fact, that I just had to make it myself so I could enjoy it again! The great thing about a dish like this is you can follow the basics of the recipe and add or subtract ingredients to tweak it to your liking. I modified the recipe a bit to make it a little heartier by adding a bit more meat and carrots (sliced instead of shredded), put the sauce over no-yolk egg noodles instead of spaghetti and I topped it with grated Parmesan instead of parsley. The overall flavors are great – the Worcestershire sauce gives it an unexpected flavor that works perfectly with the rest of the dish.
