This is a really simple and easy recipe to make and is definitely a family favourite.


frylight or a low calorie cooking spray

1 large onion,finely chopped,

3 garlic cloves, crushed

half tsp dried chilli flakes

half tsp ground cinnamon

1 heaped tsp dried basil

1 large carrot, chopped or finely grated

handful of mushrooms finely chopped

1 yellow pepper finely chopped

500g extra-lean minced beef

2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes

200g passata

1tsp sweetener

salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Spray a large frying pan with frylight and add the onion, garlic and the chilli flakes. Cook until the onions are softened and stir occasionally
  2. Add the cinnamon, basil, carrots, peppers, mushrooms and the minced beef, fry this for roughly 4 minutes until the minced beef is browned.
  3. Now add the tomatoes, passata and sweetener, season and stir all the ingredients together. Bring it to the boil then cover and simmer over a low heat for about 30 minutes.
  4. Whilst this is cooking on a low heat make the pasta according to packet instructions.
  5. Serve together and add cheese if you wish to.


This roughly takes about 45 minutes to make and serves 4 people.

This recipe is free on the extra easy slimming world plan (if using cheese make sure you measure using healthy extra A or syns)

We also had our own homemade garlic bread using 1 slice of wholemeal bread (healthy extra B) and a couple of sprays of garlic frylight to have alongside our pasta bolognese. Its quick and easy to make simply spray the bread 2 or 3 times with the garlic frylight and pop in the toaster.
