Delicious, healthy pasta bolognese that can be made with any mince you like.

Best of all, for all you Slimming World members, this is syn-free! It can also stay syn-free with the cheese added to the top, if you use this as one of your 'Healthy A' choices!

 200 g Dried PastaAny kind - I usually choose Fusilli or Penne
 500 g Lean MinceAny kind, preferably 5% fat or less - I used Pork Mince
 1 OnionDiced
 1 Bell PepperDiced
 2 Garlic ClovesChopped or Minced
 200 g Mushrooms
 600 g Chopped TomatoesAbout 1 can and a half
 400 ml Beef Stock (or Vegetable Stock/Boiling Water)Made up with stock cubes or stock pot
 1 tbsp Tomato Purée
 1 tbsp Oregano (Optional)
 1 tbsp Basil (Optional)
 100 g Cheese (Optional)Grated
1

Turn the Ninja Foodi on, select the Sear/Saute function on HIGH and let it warm up for a minute. Add the bell pepper and onion to the pot and fry gently for about 2 minutes.

2

Now add the minced meat. Keep cooking and stirring until the meat is no longer pink. This takes around 3-4 minutes maximum.

3

Now add the garlic, mushrooms and tomato purée and stir through. You can add in some salt, pepper, oregano and basil to season now (if you wish). Cook for 1-2 minutes just to heat it through. Now turn off the Sear/Saute function.

4

Pour the can and a half of chopped tomatoes over the mix. DO NOT STIR (this is really important).

5

Layer the pasta over the chopped tomatoes evenly, again DO NOT STIR.

Gently pour over the 400ml of beef / vegetable stock. You can just use 400ml of boiling water at this point, if you prefer.

6

Finally, select the Pressure Cook function for 5 minutes on HIGH. Then Quick Release the pressure.

Stir and you're ready to serve! Alternatively, if you like a bit of melted cheese on top your pasta, see Step 7.

7

Sprinkle over the grated cheese and select the Grill function for around 3-4 minutes to melt the cheese. You can grill for longer, if you like it more crispy. Enjoy!

    1. It is important because of the fluid levels. You need to have free flowing fluid or the pressure cooker will not work as it cannot build up the pressure. If you stir it all soaks in and will not work. Don’t worry the cooking process actually mixes it all together for you
