10. Spaghetti Bolognese

In my recipe, I do the right step of tossing the pasta with the sauce earlier than serving. However at RTM, we simply put plain cooked spaghetti within the containers then spoon the sauce over, and sprinkle with parmesan. This holds up higher within the freezer.
And right here you’ve gotten it!
