5 veg Bolognese.....

I always try to make sure the boys eat there 5 a day. 
They are great at it to be honest, Noahs not so keen on veg but he always gobbles up my 5 veg bolengesis. 

What you need :: 
500g lean mince beef
2 carrots 
5 mushrooms 
1 courgette 
1 onion 
1 can of Tinned tomatoes 
2 garlic cloves 
A couple of big spoon fulls of red and green pesto 
Some nutmeg

What to do
Chop up the onion and add it to a hot pan, let that soften up then add in the mince. Whilst the mince is browning, chop up the veg into small cubes (you can feats the veg as this then completely hides the veg from fussy children) 
Add to the meat, then pour in the tinned toms and a little bit of water, then in ho your spoon fulls of pesto then crush in your garlic and herbs! 

The longer it cooks the better.
I usually get mine going at lunch time so that by dinner it is perfect. 
You could pop it in a slow cooker and have it on all day. Your house would smell amazing!

I serve mine with pasta as the boys like that more than spaghetti. 

Sometimes they have garlic bread as an extra treat.
