Chicken Bolognese with foodhaus

This is basically a traditional saucy, rich bolognese sauce but the only difference is that it is made with chicken mince, which I picked up at foodhaus. Sometimes I am in the mood for bolognese, but I don’t feel like beef mince. So on those occasions, this is what I make. It’s perfect for the little ones in the family, and for the big ones – they will both enjoy it! Very easy to make too, so it’s a great weeknight meal. Enjoy!
