Here is a great one pot meal that will feed a family of 6 (or provide delicious leftovers).
And yes, even the pasta is cooked in the same pot!
Save time on washing up and mess by creating this tasty one pot wonder for a healthy eating mid-week meal in around 30 minutes.  One Pot Spag Bol

Try to find wholegrain spaghetti if you can – it’s a much healthier option when you are trying to lose pregnancy weight.
This healthy recipe contains 6 different vegetables so it’s a great way to pack in lots of nutrition and vitamins.
If you would prefer not to use the wine, simply use 3 cups of stock instead of 2.
One Pot Spag Bol


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large red onion, peeled and finely diced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and grated
  • 2 stalks celery, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 6 medium mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 zucchini, grated
  • 1 tsp minced chilli (optional)
  • 500g lean beef mince
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tbsp tomato sauce
  • 800g tinned diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • 250g wholemeal spaghetti
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Handful of fresh basil leaves, to serve
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese, to serve


  • Heat the oil in a large pan over med/high heat – the pan needs to be big enough to hold all of the bolognese and the spaghetti too.
  • Cook the onion, carrot, celery and garlic for 3 minutes.
  • Add the chilli, if using, and then add the zucchini and mushrooms and cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Add the mince to the pan and brown the mince for around 5 minutes, stirring continuously.
  • Pour in the Worcestershire sauce, tomato sauce, tomatoes, wine and stock.
  • Season to taste and stir to combine.
  • Place the lid on and bring to the boil.
  • Reduce the heat to medium and add your spaghetti to the pan (you may need to break the pasta in half if your pan isn’t big enough).
  • Simmer, uncovered, for around 15 minutes or until the pasta is cooked, stirring several times during the cooking time.
  • Sprinkle over the fresh basil leaves, and then serve with the Parmesan cheese.
