My Special Spaghetti Bolognese (hubby's favourite)

I follow the SW recipe from their website, however I always add some additional syn free ingredients to the recipe to make it more tasty.

I add some hot chilli powder, some garlic powder and some tomato purée.

Here is the basic recipe from SW website:


Fry Light, for spraying
2 shallots, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
340g/12oz extra lean minced beef
227g/8oz button mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 x 397g/14oz can chopped tomatoes
284ml/10fl oz beef stock
1 level tbsp Worcestershire sauce
salt and freshly ground black pepper
283g/10oz spaghetti, dried


Spray a pan with Fry Light and cook the shallots and garlic for 2â??3 minutes until just softened. Stir in the mince and cook for 2â??3 minutes until browned.
Stir in the mushrooms and cook for 1 minute. Add the chopped tomatoes, stock and Worcestershire sauce. Season lightly and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 15 minutes until reduced and thickened. Check the seasoning.
Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti in a large pan of salted boiling water, as per the packet instructions, until just tender. Drain and divide between 4 serving plates. Top with the Bolognese sauce and sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese if you fancy (1½ Syns per level tbsp).
