Followers of the Slim-Fast diet eat 3 snacks, 2 shakes or bars and 1 "proper" healthy meal per day. On its UK website, Slim-Fast provides 31 suggested recipes that can be used by followers of its diet, and which count as healthy, proper meals. As Slim-Fast dieters only get to eat one real meal per day, it is essential that this one meal per day is appealing and appetising. Otherwise, we suspect that most people wouldn't last long! In this third in a new series of articles we review another of these 31 recipes - Spaghetti Bolognese.
The following recipe makes 1 serving.
I thought this was a decent recipe, which I give 3.5 stars out of a possible 5 stars. The taste was good, although it could be improved through the additional of some worcester sauce or even brown sauce. I would also double the amount of garlic in order to make the taste even better. As with the other Slim-Fast recipes that we have reviewed recently, the portion size is good and it would be sufficient to fill up even the hungriest of dieters. As an alternative to spaghetti, I would also serve this with a jacket potato - since there are lots of juices produced in the cooking of this recipe.
