Penne Bolognese

This is a quick Penne Bolognese when you don’t have time and you’re running around like a headless chicken (like I am these days) but you need to make Lunch/Dinner. (lol) My husband loves it (me too!) so everyone is happy!

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 40 minutes
Serves: 4 people


  • 2 Carrots, chopped finely
  • 1 large Onion, chopped finely

  • 1 tablespoon Dried Oregano
  • 2 Chicken Stock Cubes

  1. Chop all vegetables finely.
