Sarah’s Bolognese Pasta Bake

Thermos Taste for Adventure

As a slimmer I ensure to set time aside weekly to meal plan and batch cook. I love making healthy but exciting and tasty meals. This Bolognese Pasta Bake with Spicy Cheese Sauce and Garlic Bread is one of our favourite family dishes. I always cook extra so I have it at hand in the freezer. It’s either a quick evening meal option or a tasty lunch option which we can heat up and take to work or school in our Thermos Food Flasks which keeps food hot for hours on end.

Serves 8
10 minutes to prepare and 40 minutes to cook


  1. Cook the mince in a large wok with the large diced onion and 5 crushed garlic cloves.
  2. In a pan fry off 1 diced red, green and yellow pepper, 2 grated carrots and half a tray of sliced button mushrooms.
  3. Mix the fried vegetables into the mince with 2 beef stock pots (no water) just the stock pots, same goes for 1 herb infusion stock pot. Add in the 2 cartons of passata along with 2 tbsp worcestershire sauce, 1 tsp oregano, 1 tsp smoked paprika, 1 tsp basil and finally a handful of freshly chopped parsley and simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. I measured 75g of pasta per person as recommended on the pack, added a little extra so we could all enjoy this for lunch tomorrow in our @thermosuk food flasks.
  5. Tear the 4 cheese slices into strips and add to a small pot with 30ml of cold water. Heat and stir until cheese starts to melt. Add in 1 level tbsp red hot buffalo wings sauce to give it a spicy kick.
  6. Served with 1 reduced fat cheesy garlic bread slice.
