I had spag bol today, I can't remember how many discover points it used to be but it was always a low meal for me. Sainsbury's do extra lean mince, 500g makes enough for 4 people.

For the sauce, fry the onions in spray until soft, fry the mince, add a can of chopped tomatoes. Add dried herbs (I use basil and oregano), about a teaspoon of each, a teaspoon of sugar or sweetner, a dash of Worcestershire sauce, a teaspoon of paprika (optional), salt & pepper, simmer, done!

use Quorn instead of mince it's nowhere near as many points and tastes just as good! We use it with a jar of Ragu(2PP) and a carton of passata, add garlic onions and mushrooms, my daughter worked it out to 6 PP per serving

Might look into Quorn actually! Cheers :)

I make my own chilli and the only thing in it that actually has points is the beef, so I've decided to replace it with quorn as 140g of mince (roughly 1/4 pack) is 5 points and 300g (a whole pack) of quorn works out to 4.5 points. Fingers crossed it tastes ok, I'm making it tomorrow!

Made my spag bol - gorgeous and the points in it were 7 for a massive 3 portions - I just did onions, mushrooms and peppers all free and fill me up nicely, then tinned toms herbs and quorn mince (5) absolutely gorgeous and it really really filled me up - having it again tonight but this time I'll add lots of chill powder free, and have it as a chilli. Hope that helps a bit.
