Spaghetti bolognese is one of our favourite family meals. My mother-in-law Jean gave me this recipe over 20 years ago. This is the same basic recipe with a few tweaks and made in a big batch.

The original recipe used dried soya mince, but I use frozen veggie mince which I buy from my local supermarket. Dried soya mince was all you could buy in the early 90s and you could only buy it from a health shop. Yes, times have moved on thankfully.

This bolognese is super tasty and full of vegetables to help with your five-a-day. It's packed with onion, garlic, carrots and mushrooms and has a rich flavour thanks to lots of red wine. The red wine gives it a wonderful depth of flavour, but don't worry the alcohol is burned off during cooking.
