Spaghetti Bolognese in 15mins?!?!

Yes, indeed! You can create a flavorsome and delicious dinner in just 15 minutes using the Beaba Babycook®. The Babycook takes care of all the hard work for you! This recipe is loaded with vegetables, iron, and protein, making it a well-balanced meal for your family.

Here's what you'll need:


  • 1 finely chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 carrot, peeled and cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 red capsicum, cut into small pieces
  • 300 grams of mince 
  • 1 tablespoon tomato purée
  • 150mls passata
  • 150 grams spaghetti of your choice (use gluten-free if needed)

Optional (for serving):

  • Freshly chopped basil
  • Parmesan cheese (omit for a dairy-free option)


  1. Start by adding the pasta to the Beaba Babycook® Pasta/Rice cooker insert. Fill the water reservoir to water level 3 (Babycook Solo Express 170ml on Standard Cooking Mode) and add 1/2 cup/120ml water to the insert with the pasta. Steam cook the pasta. Once steamed, transfer the spaghetti to a bowl and set it aside.

  2. Next, add the onion, thyme, basil, garlic, carrot, red pepper, mince, tomato purée, and passata to the steaming basket of the Beaba Babycook®.

  3. Fill the steamer reservoir with water up to level 3 (Babycook Solo Express 160ml on Standard Cooking Mode) and steam the ingredients.

  4. Once the mince and veggies are steamed, carefully open the lid and remove the steaming basket.

  5. Transfer the contents of the steaming basket into the Babycook® blending bowl. Keep the water at the bottom of the steaming basket as it holds a lot of flavor!

  6. Blend the mixture to your desired texture for your baby.

  7. Serve the purée over the cooked spaghetti. Top with freshly chopped basil and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese, if desired.

  8. Serve and enjoy!

  9. The Bolognese sauce can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 2 days or frozen for up to 3 months.
