Spaghetti Bolognese is one of those dishes that I will never get tired of and it is a major comfort dish of mine. Before I joined Slimming World, I never used to make my own sauces, I would just grab a ready made jar from the supermarket. But since joining Slimming World, it has helped me to experiment and create my own sauces from scratch and I love it! Putting together different seasonings and ingredients to create a delicious sauce excites me so much (probably more than it should).

I love a good dinner but sometimes I don't always feel like cooking a meal from scratch after a long day at uni. So what I love to do is batch cook! I batch cook sauces and meals and then put them in the freezer so they are ready to defrost and eat whenever I need them. Hardly any effort required yet you still get a tasty dinner!
