Hurray, it’s …. OK, it’s not actually only 400 calories for the meal. But at under 600 with plentiful parmesan, it fits within my “small lunch, big dinner” planning system.
I added random chopped veg which I fried with the onions in the oil (left over from stirfry) and chopped up mushrooms to bulk it out and add flavour.
|Bolognese Sauce||1 tablespoon oil||119|
|120g chopped onion||38|
|100g mixed veg||35|
|2 tins tomato 19 cal/100g||296|
|700g ground beef||1,778|
|2 stock cubes||50|
|2 tablespoon sugar||100|
|Tomato sauce @64 cal||179|
It tastes nice and is really thick!

This made for a large serving – as much as I’d eat not on a diet. If I needed to keep calories under 500, I think that’d be pretty easy to do just by cutting down the spaghetti and leaving it with extra sauce.

Now, if only I could justify some garlic bread….
