    Make your own mate.

    Brown the mince - Drain off the fat.  Then add onion and mushroom and fry off a little.

    Then just put 1 x tin of tinned tomatos, some tomatoe puree, some herbs (I use mixed, oregano and basil from the little jars), add a little water and then cook like that for 20-30 mins.  Alternatively, put this mix into a slow cooker for 3 - 4 hours.

    Serve with pasta, spaghettli or whatever you please.  A little side salad with cherry tomatos, sweet peppers if you wish.

    Hey presto!

    :)

    Yep best to make your own mate, as Wilks has said.
    If you like it spicy, add some Tabasco Sauce, love this stuff :-)

    A recipe an italian ex girlfreind of mine gave me:

    2 clove garlic chopped and fried in 4 tbsp extra virgin OO with
    1/2 finely diced onion
    1 small stick celery and 1 carrot finely diced
    wait until they soften (not brown) and put to one side.

    brown mince add ionions etc and one can chopped toms with 1 tbsp or more puree.

    Cook for a while adding oregano etc in the last 10 mins.

    Never heard of wild-boar mince mate lol! 

    Our youngest daughter isn't into veg atm, so we grate some carrot in there (to disguise) as well if that helps anyone.

    My trouble with the 'splash of red wine' bit, is that I'd have to finish off the rest of the bottle with the meal!

    Good idea mate but I would still succumb in a dark moment and wake up in the morning with a dry mouth and 'red wine lips'!!

    I had a veggie spag bol the other day (vegetarian family member staying over) and it was amazing! It was based around Quorn mince which, when in a spag bol, tastes identical to real mince and has a very similar texture to it which makes eating it very nice. It's also high in protein and low in calories;

    100g whole wheat spaghetti - 330 calories, 12g protein
    300g Quorn Mince - 280 calories, 43g protein
    320g Dolmio Bolognese Light - 110 calories, 5g protein

    Overall Macronutrients;

    Cals - 720
    Pro - 60
    Carb - 100
    Fat - 8

    The above serves two, so just divide all of the calorie and macro amounts by two and you have yourself a pretty healthy, very tasty spag bol. 

    "Protein Powder .. that's like steroids, right?"

    "Yes, chocolate flavoured steroids. I also have some strawberry flavoured crystal meth if you're interested?"
