Spaghetti Bolognaise Served With A Fried Egg

Good ol’ spaghetti bolognaise is a family favourite in many a home. It’s quick and easy to cook and you can jazz it up by adding a variety of extra toppings.

For example, you may like to serve it with a fried egg on top, topped with fresh parsley. Add a spoonful of sour cream and grated cheese for extra indulgence.

You also can add a potato, cut into small dice, to your bolognaise sauce to stretch the meat a little further and save on the pocket.
