Heat the oil and fry the onion, carrot, celery, garlic and mushrooms for 5-10 minutes until softened. Add the remaining ingredients except the mince, spaghetti, cheese and basil and cook for 15-20 minutes until the sauce has thickened.

Place the pasta in a large pan of boiling water and cook according to the pack instructions. Drain but save 3-4 tablespoons of the cooking water.

Meanwhile stir in the mince into the tomato sauce and heat through for 3-4 minutes, adding a little of the pasta cooking water if required.

Serve the spaghetti Bolognese topped with the cheese and basil.

TIP: If you don’t have time to make the sauce from scratch look out for tomato sauces with added vegetables or add some grated carrot and frozen peas to boost your veggie intake!
