Spaghetti Bolognese - Recipe and Portion Size

Hi, made this for tea -

500g minced beef, 1 large onion chopped, 1red pepper chopped, 1 courgette grated, 1 beef stock pot, pkt colemans spag bol mix, 1tin chopped toms.

4 portions - 455 calories each

50g dry weight spaghetti - 150 calories

12g grated Parmesan to serve - 50 calories

Total 655

It was delicious, even if I do say so myself!

The portion of spaghetti did seem small, but I am happy to report I feel satisfied but not over full and bloated!

I find it difficult to lessen portion sizes, my eyes tell me there is not enough but this just proves f I am strict and use the scales, there is actually enough!

try it without the Coleman's packet mix, you don't need it! I put chopped or grated carrots in mine too, it adds sweetness

I usually grate a carrot but didn't have any today, suppose I should have walked to the shop for extra exercise!

Sounds yummy 😊 I also find it difficult to cope with smaller portions, but agree we can do it! I load the meat with veggies, finely chopped carrots and mushrooms are good 😊

Onwards and downwards 😊
