  • Cook the pumpkin in the microwave as I explained HERE.

  • Add the peeled and sliced ​​carrots.

  • Add the aubergine and the diced zucchini. I partially peel the zucchini because the skin is bitter, but if you don't mind, you can leave the skin on.

  • Sprinkle salt, pepper, add paprika, turmeric, ginger, chilli, mix and add tomato, sugar and a glass of water (200 ml)

  • Cook over medium low heat for 25 minutes.

  • We now add the minced meat, why now? because the minced meat is veal, I chose the meat that I wanted to be minced, it was tender meat, so it hardly needs any cooking time, if we go too far it will be dry and tough. Once the meat is added, mix well so that it is integrated into the sauce. Add a pinch of salt again and mix, let cook for 10 more minutes.

  • We try and see if everything is on point, we add the pumpkin cooked and cut into cubes and also the broccoli in small florets.

  • If we accompany it with pasta, we cook it following the manufacturer's instructions, drain it and put it in the serving dish, cover with the Bolognese and if we have reserved some broccoli florets, arrange them around the dish.

  • Garnish with fresh basil and serve with Parmesan.

With the rest of the bolognese, fill tuppers and freeze.
