Spaghetti Bolognese aka spag bol – its the meal that tastes even better the next day, everyone loves it AND this spag bol tastes so good even when your stuck eating it for a week because…. well meal prep rotation guys.

It can be made on the cheap or a little more pricey it really depends on your preference. I use 80% organic ingredients because organic meat and produce is way better for you and it just tastes completely different to Woolies or Coles meat – it tastes normal. Your not eating added hormones, pesticides and the animals are in their natural environment – Look I could bang on for days about organic produce but i’ll save that for another post because lets face it your all here for an epic spag bol recipe –
