Weightwatchers Pasta Recipes

Weightwatchers Pasta Bolognese

I love Pasta Bolognese and i make this roughly once a month, however, when i first started WeightWatchers i had absolutely no cooking skills and it took me a full year to learn how to make this without using a store bought sauce, instant pasta or a frozen meal. 

So after about 8 months of making pure and utter slop i decided to Google a few recipes and see what i could come up with.  Four and a half years on here's an actual recipe. 

I wouldn't mind but its so simple.

Serves 4

Weightwatchers Pro Points Per Serving 9

Weightwatchers Pro Points Per Recipe 36


16 oz of Pasta of choice (450g I think)

450g pack of Turkey Mince

500g Carton of Passata or you can use 1.5 cans of Chopped Tomatoes

5 Mushrooms Chopped

1 Red Bell Pepper chopped

1 Green Bell Pepper chopped

1 Onion Chopped 

4 Cloves of Garlic Chopped

1 Tbl of Spicy Italian Seasoning

1 tsp of Italian Seasoning

Salt and Pepper to taste

1 tsp of Parmesan Cheese per serving

A sprinkling of Oregano

Spray Oil


Cook pasta according to pack instructions

Lightly spray a non stick pan with some spray oil over a high heat, add the onions and garlic and saute for 3 minutes until they turn golden, but not burning. Reduce heat to medium.  Add the peppers and saute for another 2 minutes.  Add the mince and stir, breaking up large pieces of meat. 

Add salt and pepper of half a Tbl of Spicy Italian seasoning. 

The mince should not be turning a brown/white color. Continue to break up the mince.  

Add the passata and mix well 

Add the chopped mushrooms.   Add the remainder of the seasonings. Adjust salt and pepper to taste. Cook for another 5 minutes. 

Plate up the pasta, add  1 .5 ladle spoonfuls of Bolognese on top.  

Add the Parmesan and garnish with some Oregano.
