Ingredients you will need; 

  • 500g beef mice
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 large carrots, grated

Heat 1 tbsp of the olive oil in a large saucepan and add the mince. Fry until browned, then scoop into a bowl and set aside.

Add the onion to the pan and cook on a low heat for 8-10 mins until tender. Then add the garlic, stirring for 1 min or so, followed by the carrot and the mushrooms, stirring for about 3 mins, until softened. Tip the mince back into the pan, add the tomato paste, give everything a quick stir and tip in the chopped tomatoes, then pour in the stock. Once boiling, lower the heat and simmer for about 1 hr, until the sauce has thickened and the veg is tender.

When the Bolognese is nearly ready, stir through the soy sauce and some seasoning. Spirilize your courgettes on a large noodle attachment. Bring a jug of water to the boil, then pour over your courgettes for one minute then drain. Serve topped with the Bolognese, grated parmeasan and basil leaves.
