Having 6 children can make life rather hectic, trying to keep up with the extra curricular activities that everyone wants to take part in, the mountains of laundry and dirty dishes that are created, the constant stream of "Mum..... Mum..... Mum" in my ear, so finding the time to cook meals from scratch can be quite tricky.

Luckily Dolmio have made it a lot easier for me to be able to prepare a healthy meal for the whole family, by ensuring that their jars of Dolmio sauces are 100% natural; 



Thanks to Britmums and the Dolmio #ThankGoodness campaign I was sent a brilliant hamper of food so that I could try Dolmio for myself, and see just how easy it is to make a deliciously healthy spaghetti bolognese for the whole family.




I decided to stay fairly traditional and make spaghetti bolognese with my Dolmio sauce, but created a chunky vegetable sauce to see if the children would notice the extra vegetables that I had 'hidden' in there.

I even used courgette, something that my children have never eaten before, and NO ONE noticed!




In my sauce I also included red pepper, mushrooms and sweetcorn.  
People often think I am a bit odd for adding sweetcorn to my bolognese sauce but I find that it gives it that little bit of extra crunch and sweetness, and the children love it.






We served our spaghetti bolognese using the wholewheat spaghetti, which had been sent in our hamper, and with grated Parmesan cheese.
Everyone cleared their plate which is practically unheard of in this house (lots of fussy eaters), and they have even said they would eat it again! 
I'm taking that as a win.


This is definitely a meal that I will be preparing again and again, and I am loving some of the recipe ideas that have been featured by other families taking part in the challenge.

If you fancy getting creative in the kitchen with Dolmio then I would love to see your creations in the comment section below.
