No Regretti Bolognese

Oodles of spaghetti and no regretti here! There isn’t much that beats a classic spaghetti bolognese when it comes to a homestyle, hearty dinner and crowd pleaser. Transform your bolognese with these rich, aromatic flavours and healthify the sauce with your favourite Nutra Organics Bone Broth or a few scoops of our Veggie Hero for some easy nutrition for the kids. 


500g pork and veal mince*

1 large carrot chopped

2 large sticks of celery chopped

1 brown onion chopped

4 cloves of garlic

Extra virgin olive oil

1 700ml bottle of tomato passata*

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar or red wine vinegar

2 sprigs of fresh rosemary

3 fresh bay leaves

500g dried rigatoni pasta

40 g parmesan cheese, optional

Ground black pepper




* You can choose any mince you like - turkey, chicken, beef or lamb would work perfectly.

* Use any of your favorite store bought or homemade tomato pasta sauce

*  If you are making this recipe for kids and want to avoid the fight at the dinner table about the veggies they can see, use 3 heaped tablespoons of Nutra Organics Veggie Hero.

* We like to add some fresh chopped herbs to my bolognese just before serving, our favorites are basil, parsley and chives.
