  • 1 tablespoon of tomato <g class="gr_ gr_2315 gr-alert gr_gramm Grammar multiReplace" id="2315" data-gr-id="2315">puree</g>
  • teaspoon a of dried oregano
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  • Start by cutting the top of the pepper
  • Then remove the insides so that you have a clean peper.
  • So that we didn't have to cut the bottom of the pepper we put the peppers into a couple of ramakins so that they would then sit upright and it's easier for the kids to fill. When I've made them myself I will even out the bottoms without cutting through the pepper so that you can fill and place them onto the place once cooked.
  • Cut up the mushrooms and onions
  • Crush the garlic
  • Heat the olive oil in the pan and then add the mushrooms, onions and garlic to the pan.
  • When they are browned add your mince
  • With the mince browned pour in the carton of passatta and then add in the tablespoon of tomato puree.
  • Stir then sprinkle in the dried oregano and season to taste
  • Simmer for 5 minutes
  • Take off the heat and spoon in the mince into the peppers - any left over bolognase leave to cool and then freeze so you have a easy homemade ready meal for a weeknight supper.
  • Place in the oven for 15 minutes.
  • Serve with your choice of side dish.
