Gluten-Free Spaghetti Bolognese

 

One-pot meal

Difficulty: Easy

 

It's nourishing and comforting, easy to prepare and budget-friendly. It keeps for a few days in the fridge or freezes well into portions if you're a little time-poor.  

 

The important thing to do is to slowly cook your spaghetti bolognese over a slow heat for 1 hour or until the flavours have married perfectly in the pot.
