If you are vegetarian, swap out the ground beef for a veggie meat substitute or even lentils. I love bolognese using green or brown lentils. Lentils can be purchased for such a low cost too, which would make these meal budget friendly.

I always have various bags of different lentils and beans in my pantry. They can come in really handy, if I do not have any meat defrosted and I need to make something up for dinner.

Have you seen my Lentil Bolognese recipe?

How can I add a ⅓ speed foods to this Bolognese Pasta Bake?

The bolognese sauce in this pasta bake comes packed with healthy speed foods like carrot, onion, zucchini, mushrooms and tomatoes.

To increase the speed foods even furhter, I always make up a big bowl of salad which I serve in the middle of the table for everyone to dig into and add some to their plate.

All kinds of salad vegetables are perfect - baby greens, crisp lettuce, cucumber, carrot, peppers, tomatoes, onion.

      It would be suitable to freeze, made up before it goes in the oven. But would perhaps dry out a bit if frozen after going in the oven. Hope that helps

    Shevy this met with thumbs up from the other half in this house! It is a ripper recipe and certainly can lay claim to "best ever" bolognese. We loved it! I followed the recipe to the letter and used gluten free penne pasta which turned out fine. Thanks for another winner and a keeper! ❤️
