The skinnymixer’s Chunky Bolognese has been a popular recipe on the Thermomix Recipe Community for a few years now, and has some fantastic 5 star reviews. Recently I asked the community who felt like they were not using their Thermomix or Bellini as much as they thought they should be, nearly 3,000 people responded…

and so I launched a new initiative called Simple Meal Sunday, to inspire and encourage people to use their machines more. This spaghetti recipe is fantastic because its simple, healthy and budget friendly. It can also be reinvented into so many different kinds of meals, from Chilli Con Carne (using my Mexican Spice Mix), to Shepherds Pie (using my Silky Sweet Potato Mash) to name a few.

I have included both the low calorie/quick version which is HCG compliant and a version using fresh ingredients.
