Jamie Oliver says, "The secret to a seriously good Bolognese is to make a big batch and cook it low and slow. This one contains lentils and veg, and is super-quick to pull together, with the hob doing all the hard work. I like to make it at the weekend when I have a bit more time, then pop it into the freezer in batches for amazing midweek meals. Enjoy it with your favourite pasta, in a cottage pie or as the base for a smoky chilli." See method

Jamie's tip: "I've replaced half the mince with lentils (a source of protein with less fat), without scrimping on taste."
