The two budget ALDI cult buys that will transform your mid-week favourite - Spaghetti Bolognese!

Everyone's favourite mid-week meal is about to be transformed!

The humble Spaghetti Bolognese - a staple weeknight dinner for many of us - can sometimes feel a little same-old, same-old.

But now a home cook on social media has revealed her two secret ALDI ingredients which can add a dash of excitement to the old favourite, Spag Bol!

Posting on a popular Facebook page, Aussie shopper Chloe revealed she uses a dip and a relish to give an added zing to the flavour of her family's dish. 

ALDI’s Mediterranean Delite Garlic Dip and Colway’s Caramelised Onion Relish are added in to her pasta sauce to give it some extra flavour. 

Both items are available at ALDI while the Garlic Dip is on sale at other supermarkets across the country. 

Just recently the Mediterranean Garlic Dip has become a huge hit with ALDI shoppers, who say that they buy as many as they can in one go because they have become obsessed with its flavour. 

And now Chloe’s idea to use both items in her bolognese has been described as a “game changer” on the Aldi Mums Facebook page.

Chloe revealed that she simply adds a few tablespoons of both the dip and the relish until she likes the flavour.  

"I have a kilo of mince in [this photo] and used about 3/4 jar of the onion relish and half of the garlic dip,” she said. “Just add until it is to your taste.”

Others suggested other ways to use dip if you had any left over.

“Spread it on a piece of bread and top with cheese and grill. Yum!”
