Wheat Free Spaghetti Bolognese Recipe
My son isn't wheat intolerant and is fine with spaghetti and pasta but when I came across this recipe I thought what a great way to get more fruit into his diet. He eats most veg anyway but I love meals which taste great and are full of goodness. If your little one's don't like their fruits and vegetables then hopefully you'll find this recipe useful for sneaking them in. This recipe is also great if you can't tolerate wheat and are missing your dose of spaghetti bolognese.
1 Butternut squash
2 Teaspoons of sunflower oil
500g Organic beef mince
2x Tinned organic tomatoes
1 Teaspoon of sunflower oil
1. Preheat oven to 160. Using a sharp knife, cut the butternut squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds and discard. Place the halves with the cut side up on a baking sheet. Drizzle with sunflower oil and season with black pepper and oregano. Roast the butternut squash in the oven for 40-45 minutes, until you can poke it easily with a fork. Let it cool until you can handle it safely. Then scrape the insides with a fork to shred the butternut squash into strands.
2. While the spaghetti squash is roasting heat a frying pan with sunflower oil and then add chopped onion and chopped mushrooms. Fry for a few minutes and then add beef mince and garlic. Once beef mince is browned add tinned tomatoes and season with black pepper and chili flakes. Simmer on low heat until ready to serve.
3. Serve Bolognese over squash spaghetti.
You can make the bolognese as you usually would, above is just how I made it yesterday. I usually add a variety of vegetables into my bolognese but I only had mushrooms and onions in yesterday. Be careful with the amount of chili flakes you use as these can upset some peoples tummies - especially little ones. I use a pinch when making bolognese for my son and if I want more I add it to mine after serving. My son loved this recipe so I have separated it into pots and put it in the freezer for him.
