Spaghetti and Meatballs: An old time classic, easy to prepare and cheap.

 500 g Meatballs (can be purchased at most supermarkets)
 1 Onion (diced)
 2 Garlic Cloves (chopped)
 750 g Leggo's Bolognese Sauce
 400 g Diced Tomatoes
 500 g Wholemeal Spaghetti
 1 Zucchini (shredded)
 2 Carrots (shredded)
 1 cup Sliced Mushrooms
 1 cup Fresh Spinach
 1 tsp Salt
 1 tsp Pepper

Dice the onion and garlic and place in a preheated, lightly oiled, medium sized saucepan. Cook until translucent.


Add the bolognese sauce, tinned tomatoes and salt and pepper. Stir.


Grate the carrots and the zucchini and add to sauce. Add the mushrooms and spinach and cook on a medium heat.


Meanwhile, prepare another medium/large saucepan by filling with water and bringing to boil.


Once boiling, add your pasta to the water and stir, making sure the pasta does not stick together in the pot. Turn the heat down a notch or two and let it cook until it becomes soft.


Heat up frying pan with a splash of olive oil. Add the meatballs and cook until they are brown all over and no longer pink in middle (approximately 7-10 minutes).


Continue stirring your sauce throughout these steps (feel free to add any other herbs or spices at this point for extra flavour).


Once pasta is ready, use a colander to drain out water. Divide into your desired servings.


Place a generous amount of sauce on each dish with approximately 6-7 meatballs each (depending on size).


Top with cheese for extra flavour. Enjoy!
