Meat Pasta / Chicken Pasta – our take on a Bolgnese-like dish.

This is my recipe for Spaghetti Bolognese.


  • 1 lb or Minced (Ground) Beef or two large chicken breasts, diced.
  • 1000g passata.
  • 2 garlic cloves – finely chopped
  • Approx three or four inch cubed piece of Butternut Squash, grated
  • mushrooms
  • two peppers
  • one courgette
  • basil
  • paprika
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • Worcestershire sauce


  • Brown the mince or diced chicken breast
  • Add the vegetables and garlic and fry for a few minutes.
  • add passata
  • Add basil, salt,  black pepper, paprika and worcestershire sauce, to taste.
  • Simmer until the sauce has reduced to the desired consistency – about 25 – 35 minutes.
  • Serve on pasta of your choice.

This is also the basis for my Lasagne, but it reduce the sauce slightly more and use a bit less vegetables.
