    I use Quorn mince, add a beef Oxo cube (1 Syn) add a tin of chopped tomatoes with herbs and garlic. The tomatoes are essential with Quorn as Quorn is dry so it soaks up the tomato juice. Add anything else you want with it, mushrooms etc. Just cook it all up in a frying pan and serve up on a bed of spaghetti

    I use the tinned toms rather than puree cus the juice is thinner and the Quorn soaks it up and give it a consistency more like real mince

    i 'fry' garlic, finely chopped onion in a little water and frylight and add sliced mushrooms a few minutes later.

    once the onion has softened add a carton of passata, a tin of tomatoes and a generous squirt of tomato puree. heat through and add the quorn.

    here comes the experimental part - i then add a little salt, pepper, paprika, chilli powder, a spoonful of marmite and some sweetener (to take the acidity away from the tomatoes) to taste.

    simmer for a a while then add torn fresh basil leaves about 5 minutes before serving.

    Fry off the onions and garlic, add the peppers and mushrooms.. cook through and then add the passata, salt, pepper and herbs. Mix with the quorn mince, cook for about 10 mins then switch off the heat and leave for a few hours to soak up the flavours.... heat through and serve with pasta, salad and a small amountof grated cheese.. yummy!!!

    I always use quorn chicken peices instead of the mince. I know spag bol is beef mince but the chicken absorbs the tomato so nicely. I always use sweetcorn. Mmm. I wanted this tonight but we ran out of spaghetti!

    Tonight's tea has been:

    chopped onion, leek, green pepper - all 'dry fried' one jar of passata with one oxo cube - added in mixed herbs, garlic powder and a generous amount of chilli powder - then added the quorn mince and simmer for a while - had to add a little bit of water as the quorn soaked up the juice. Cooked pasta twists and mixed the two together - served with a sprinkle of parmesan. we have enough left over for lunch tomorrow as well, hurrah!

    I prefer to use passata most of the time, especially for sauces. I notice its just gone up from 29p to 44p in Tesco! I was outraged, so got a load of cartons of it in Morrisons for 28p each.

    I used to get the 3kg bags of pasta in Tesco for £1, then they went up and up and now they are £3 something. Scandalous! lol
