vegetarian spaghetti bolognese

For a healthy Saturday lunch, I cooked a vegetarian spaghetti bolognese.
Served with some salad and a fruit smoothie (unfortunately salad and smoothie are not in the photo).

Vegetarian Spaghetti Bolognese

- spaghetti
- 1 onion
- 1 leek
- 4 cloves of garlic
- either a jar of prepared bolognese sauce if you are lazy, or a can of chopped tomatoes
- tomato paste
- mixed herbs
- salt and pepper
- olive oil

Cooking Method:
- Place spaghetti in boiling water, add salt and olive oil. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 11 minutes (check the packet for details)
- Slice the onion, garlic and leek.
- In a separate pan, add some olive oil and gently fry the onion, garlic and leek. Add some salt and mixed herbs.
- Add the tomato paste and stir
- Add half the jar of bolognese sauce, or the tin of chopped tomatoes.
- If using the jar, it'll be quicker to cook (just a few minutes), if using the tin of chopped tomatoes then cook for 10 minutes on low.
- Drain the spaghetti and add the rest of the tomato sauce.
- Serve with your choice of salad, garlic bread, olives etc.
