Save time on washing up and mess by creating this tasty one pot wonder from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge for a mid-week meal in around 30 minutes.  One Pot Spaghetti Bolognese

Try to find wholegrain spaghetti if you can – it’s a much healthier option when you are trying to lose weight.

This healthy recipe contains 6 different vegetables so it’s a great way to pack in lots of nutrition and vitamins.

If you would prefer not to use the wine, simply use 3 cups of stock instead of 2.

Instructions
  1. Heat the oil in a large pan over med/high heat – the pan needs to be big enough to hold all of the bolognese and the spaghetti too.
  2. Cook the onion, carrot, celery and garlic for 3 minutes.
  3. Add the chilli, if using, and then add the zucchini and mushrooms and cook for another 2 minutes.
  4. Add the mince to the pan and brown the mince for around 5 minutes, stirring continuously.
  5. Pour in the Worcestershire sauce, tomato sauce, tomatoes, wine and stock.
  6. Season to taste and stir to combine.
  7. Place the lid on and bring to the boil.
  8. Reduce the heat to medium and add your spaghetti to the pan (you may need to break the pasta in half if your pan isn’t big enough).
  9. Simmer, uncovered, for around 15 minutes or until the pasta is cooked, stirring several times during the cooking time.
  10. Sprinkle over the fresh basil leaves, and then serve with the Parmesan cheese.
