Bolognese is one of the easiest and fastest ways to feed a large family (and still have leftovers)! It is also my personal favorite way to pack in (or hide) lots of vegetables for a fiber-filled meal. Eat it over a grain of your choice, and you have yourself a delicious, nutritious, and filling dish! It is a dish that can be easily made ahead of time and simply reheated as well.
Health Benefit: This meal provides tons of protein and fiber to help keep you and your family fuller for longer!
