Crispy Roast Potato & Bolognese Bake

This recipe came together when I was staring into my all but empty fridge, trying to come up with something different to eat.

That’s how I put together this Crispy Roast Potato & Bolognese Bake, which combines a rich bolognese sauce, packed with vegetables, with crispy herb covered potatoes, pulled together with a touch of tasty melted cheese.

No Waste One Pan Gammon & Bean Bake

No Waste - One Pan Gammon & Bean Bake - Iceland Foods - Slimming World - Syn Free - Healthy - Money Saving Recipe

 

Did you know that UK households waste a massive 7 MILLION TONNES of food every single year? That works out, according to the government agency WRAP, at a loss of £700 per family on average. Just think of what we could all do with that extra £700 each if we simply made an effort to reduce our food waste? Personally it’d go towards a deposit on a house, but you could go on holiday, get a dog, or just put it away for a rainy day. Whatever you’d do with the money, the fact remains that it is ridiculous that we waste so much, something with Iceland believe too, which is why they’ve asked me to come up with a recipe using their food which not only tastes amazing but shows exactly how far one meal can go and how easy it is to reduce waste and save money when cooking! This blog post for my No Waste one Pan Gammon &  Bean Bake doesn’t only give you one recipe, but if you scroll further down gives you TWO MORE recipes for how to use your leftovers and reduce your household waste.  Continue Reading…
