Everyone can cook up Bolognese but no two recipes are the same everyone has their own slant on it and  if you are buying shop bought jars you are getting a lot more than you bargained for, they are full of sugars, salts and preservatives and they can get pretty expensive
Making you own takes about the same time and cuts the calories drastically, it will taste infinitely better and will be packed full of healthy benefits 

The last one made I used Quorn to try it out,  most of their products taste better than chicken, but I wasn't all that impressed with the mince, it looked and smelled the part but the texture was not perfect, I enjoyed it but probably would use turkey mince as per usual next time, but you have to try new things right?

Here's what you are going to need to make my Bolognese

500g Mince Turkey or Quorn
1 Red Onion Diced
1 Tsp Minced Garlic
1 Green Capsicum
1 Red Capsicum 
2 Large Field Mushrooms
2 Tins of Diced Tomato
1 Tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
2 Tbsp Tomato Paste
1 bunch oregano chopped

Saute the onion and Garlic
Add the mince and brown, set this aside and keep warm
Add the Capsicum and Mushrooms to the pan and cook until tender
Add back the Mince and Add Tomatoes, Tomato Paste and Red wine vinegar
Simmer until sauce thickens and sever with Zucchini Pasta
with 600Cals for 4 Serves this is a pretty tasty low calorie comfort food you can add to your reportoire
