Spaghetti bolognese is one dish which families tend to have variations of, including specific vegetables or blending the mince and sauce down to make it fine as two examples of variations.
The warming dish also goes well with warm crusty bread, or garlic bread – there is a recipe for garlic bread below if you so choose.
If making spaghetti bolognese at home, the meat can be substituted with Quorn mince and vegetable stock to make a vegetarian option if needed.
Slice the bread in half lengthwise. Toast the crust side for two mins until really crispy.
Mix together butter, garlic and parsley in a bowl. Spread over the cut bread halves. Sprinkle over the Parmesan.
Just before serving place on a baking sheet, then cook under a hot grill for five minutes until toasty and lightly golden.
Let it cool for one minute before cutting into thick slices.
