I am always asked for a chunkier style bolognese. I posted last year about using the rice basket for cooking mince for a chunkier result  but I thought I would write up an actual recipe which may be more helpful.

This is a chunky style bolognese packed full of vegetables. Whilst the mince in nice and chunky the vegetables are quite fine so great for all those vegetable detectives in the house.

I use my homemade Passata in this recipe. You can use store bought Passata if preferred. I like to use Herbamare salt in most of my recipes as it gives a nice flavour to the sauce. You can use salt.

    Just made this Peta – using your passata too! I added some thermo tomato ketchup that needed using up. Finally, a bolognese that is the right consistency but done in the thermomix. Many have tried but I think only you have succeeded with this one! Thanks!
