anyone got any idea about this for ww points? I am putting in pound of mince (8) jar and a half of ragu sauce (5) mushroom onions little bit of oil in the pan (2) this will do about three dinners and i cook a hand ful of pasta with it, so would 8 pointe be enough to count for this??

Sounds about right if you eat 225g of cooked pasta.

Hi there goody2shoes, Brown your mince in pan, drain off excess fat ( i dont cook mince in any oil as enough fat in it already, just put it straight into pan) When all excess fat drained add your onion, mushroom, pepper ect and leave cook for 2-3mins Then add mixed herbs, garlic salt. Then add small tin of tomato puree ( i use dunnes own tin tomato puree, i add all tin) Stir it through, add water next and leave to simmer away. Hope this helps O:o)

Dolmio do a light spag bol sauce that tastes yummy and a lot less fat!

Just a bit of a tip i think might help - i boil the mince first as this gets rid of all fat, i brown it in wok after.
