Organic meal kit – Italian penne bolognese (serves 4)



Make a penne bolognese dinner for 4 people. 

Meal kit contains: 500g beef mince, fresh mixed Italian herbs from our organic garden, veges (e.g. onion, garlic, carrot, mushroom, zucchini), penne pasta 500g (w/meal or gluten free (+$5) available by request), tomato puree, diced tomato tin, recipe card.

You’ll need from your own supplies: salt, pepper, sugar, oil, grated cheese garnish. Please note: all contents seasonal and subject to change. This list is a guide only. 


Finely chop veggies (onion, garlic, herbs, carrot, mushroom, zucchini, etc). Heat a large pan on high heat with a dash of oil, and saute chopped onion till translucent. Add chopped garlic, veggies and herbs, stir for another minute or so, then add the defrosted mince. Stir occasionally till mince is browned off, then add tomato puree and chopped tomato tin. Stir well. Add a pinch each of sugar, salt and pepper. Bring to boil and reduce heat, stirring frequently. Once reduced to a simmer, add a dash of red wine (optional) and leave to reduce while you prepare the pasta.

Bring a large pot of water to boil, with a pinch of salt and a dash of oil. When boiling add penne and reduce heat to a simmer. Stir occasionally and test to see when it’s ready.

Once pasta is aldente (not overcooked), drain, mix with the sauce in the bigger of your two pots, and serve. top with grated cheese of your choice and accompany with side salad (optional).
