Vegetarian Spaghetti Bolognese Sauce Recipe

My spaghetti bolognese sauce recipe is vegetarian and vegan. It is meat free, dairy free and low in fat. When I eat dishes like this I can understand why people choose to become vegan and vegetarian as the taste is just simply delicious!

I use no added stocks or flavourings in my spaghetti bolognese sauce recipe, it is cooked from scratch, easy to make and is so satisying to eat that you will not miss meat in this dish at all! The vegetables and few herbs I use are enough to give this dish its wonderful flavour.

My spaghetti bolognese sauce recipe can be eaten with any spaghetti or pasta of your choice but it doesn't have to stop there, why not have some in a little bowl and dip in some fresh bread or spoon some over a delicious oven baked potato like I have here?

You don't have to be a vegetarian or vegan to enjoy Jeena's Spaghetti Bolognese Sauce Recipe! It tastes so amazingly delicious that you will forget half way through eating it that it is a vegetarian dish at all!

1 Small Onion (diced small)
1 Small Leek ( chopped)
2 Garlic Cloves (crushed roughly chopped)
1 Small Yellow Pepper/Capsicum (diced)
1 Small Green Pepper/Capsicum (diced)
1 Sweet Red Pointed Pepper (diced)
1 Bay Leaf
1 tsp Paprika
1 Tin Cherry Tomatoes
Salt and Pepper
Pinch Dried Basil
Pinch Dried Parsley

Hi, Jeena. Thank you for posting your recipe with all those great photos. Looks yummy! I went RAW a while back, so now I make raw pasta dishes. I feel energized after eating them rather than sleepy. Here's a video clip demo of me making a raw pasta dish. You'll get a kick out of my hat!

Have a wonderful day!
