Last night I cooked a quick and tasty meal that was really yummy. My Spicy Lamb Bolognese with vegie spiral pasta. I thought I’d share it with you. Here are the ingredients:

2 tbs Olive oil
6 mushrooms (sliced)
1 medium sized zucchini (sliced)
1 large carrot (grated)
2 leeks (split and finely sliced)
1 squirt of Gourmet Garden garlic
1 squirt of Gourmet Garden mild chilli
1 squirt of Gourmet Garden ginger
3 dessertspoons of tomato paste
500g lamb mince
2 cups of water
1 tsp Massel chicken-style stockpowder


Zucchini and mushrooms

Zucchini and mushrooms

Saute the mushrooms and zucchini in 1 tbs of oil until they start to caramelise then set aside. In another pan place the other tbs of oil and add the leeks, carrots, garlic, ginger and chilli. Mix well and then  put the lid on and place on a medium heat until they sweat down. You don’t want these to brown. Add the mushroom and zucchini to the carrots and leeks and using the leftover oil in the pan brown the lamb mince. Once browned add the meat to the other ingredients.

Add the tomato paste, water and stock powder, stir well and bring to the boil. Then reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Cook the pasta as per the instructions on the pack, drain and serve.
