Accredited Practicing Dietitian Geraldine Georgeou has developed a specially formulated “Study Diet”, a higher protein, low GI diet packed with nutrient-rich foods recommended in the Dietary Guidelines.
Perfect for your teenagers who are about to embark on their final exams!
Heat the oil in a large non-stick saucepan over high heat. Add the beef, onion and garlic, and cook, breaking up the mince with a wooden spoon, for 12 minutes or until browned. Stir in the remaining vegetables, herbs and passata sauce and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 40 minutes or until the vegetables are tender and the sauce has thickened slightly
Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti in a saucepan of boiling water according to packet instructions. Drain
To serve, divide the spaghetti among six bowls, top with the bolognaise and scatter with the basil leaves. Serve with crumbled ricotta
Tips - Mix and match the vegetables with a selection of your favourites. Try grating the zucchini and carrot to ‘hide’ from younger children if needed
Tip - You can substitute firm light ricotta with shaved parmesan
Tip - Use left overs for lunch the next day or freeze in an airtight container for a quick easy week night meal
