Mushroom bolognese

This dish is fantastic when you want a cheap and long lasting meal! It cost me around $7 to make and made around 6-7 servings and get this, it’s delicious too!! How fantastic! Yummy mushrooms, beef and a rich tasty pasta sauce, pair it with some crunchy bread and you and your wallet will thank me.


Mushroom bolognese
– 250g/9oz sliced mushrooms
– 1tbs oil
– 1x can diced tomatoes
– 500g/17.6oz minced beef
– 350g/12oz spaghetti
– 1x medium brown onion, diced
– 2x cloves garlic, diced
– 1 1/2 tbs balsamic vinegar, good quality
– 1/4 cup fresh parmesan cheese, gratedΒ (please for the love of all that is holy, don’t use the awful processed stuff)
– 1tbs mixed italian herbs
– 1 cup beef stock

Cook the pasta according to packet instructions and set aside.

In a large pan heat the oil and cook the onions, garlic, balsamic vinegar and mushrooms until soft. Add the mince and cook until browned. Add the tomatoes, stock, herbs and cheese and simmer until thickened.


When the sauce has simmered to a nice consistency, pour the pasta into the pan and stir until well combined. Serve with some delicious crusty bread.
