The Dolmio #thankgodness project

A few weeks ago now BritMums contacted me about their Dolmio #thankgoodnes project. It was to cook a spaghetti Bolognese and share with you guys how we cook it/eat it.

We love spaghetti Bolognese in this house and it is a real family meal. Always reminds me of the family all sitting down together to enjoy a really nice hearty meal together.

Tesco delivered us lots of lovely food in order to cook the Bolognese plus more and we had to make a mid-week meal. We have never actually used the Dolmio sauce as we always make our own, so I was looking forward to trying it. It was certainly a lot quicker and easier than making our own which is great for a busy schedule mid-week. I know a lot of people don’t like to use jars but the Dolmio sauce is all 100% natural.

In each jar, you’ll find at least 10 juicy diced tomatoes, a dollop of tomato purée, half an onion, a tablespoon of sunflower oil, a couple of cloves of garlic, a handful of herbs including basil, a teaspoon of cornflour, a teaspoon of salt, a pinch of pepper, two teaspoons of added beet sugar for taste, a squeeze of lemon juice, a splash of water and nothing more. In fact, a jar provides a family of four with one of their 5-a-day each and that’s before you add any further veg to the meal.


We all loved it and it was so tasty, knowing that everything in the jar is all natural makes it even better.

So here is what we created.

What the kids said… We absolutely love it, it is delicious and we want it every night.

What I think… It is lovely, fantastic tasting, natural and one of your 5-a day makes it a great choice for the whole family.

What Doug thought… I was very sceptical about using a jar to start with but it really was very tasty. Would definitely have this again.

Come and watch our video HERE on Youtube of the prep, cooking, finished product and verdicts.
