An Afternoon in the Kitchen #3: Simple Student Bolognese

Bolognese is the first proper meal that I decided to cook as a student, most of my previous food either being an easy option from the freezer or free food during Freshers’ (I’m not complaining!)
Bolognese is such an simple to dish to cook, and is brilliant for stocking up the freezer to make cooking after a day of lectures far less daunting. As you can see from the photo, I managed to stretch to four portions out of not a great deal of food!
500g beef mince (you can use alternatives such as pork and turkey but beef is cheaper)
1 red onion
1 carrot
500g passata
A good handful of spinach
Seasoning (I used black pepper and some mixed herbs)
1. To make life easier, chop up the vegetables first
2. Heat up some oil in a pan
3. Add the mince and brown, stirring to avoid it sticking to the pan.
4. Add the carrots and onions to the mince
5. Pour the passata over the mince and mix together.
6. Now add the spinach and seasoning.

7. Cover and let the Bolognese simmer for about 30 mins, stirring occasionally. This will allow the mince to cook and the flavour to enhance.
8. Once cooked, divide the Bolognese into portions. You could have one portion on the night and put the rest in the freezer. Just make sure the Bolognese has cooled down before putting in fridge or freezer
Hope you find this recipe simple and yummy!
