total time


2 * 240 grams Pork Mince

2 * 2 unit(s) Garlic Clove

2 * 30 grams Tomato Puree

2 * 15 grams Red Wine Jus Paste

2 * 1 sachet(s) Italian Style Herbs

2 * 45 grams Mature Cheddar Cheese

2 * 4 unit(s) Plain Taco Tortillas

2 * 1 unit(s) Medium Tomato

2 * 50 grams Baby Leaf Mix

2 * 12 milliliter(s) Balsamic Glaze

2 * 100 milliliter(s) Water for the Sauce


Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7. Heat a large frying pan on medium-high heat. Once hot, add the pork mince and fry until browned, 4-5 mins. Use a spoon to break it up as it cooks. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw mince. Meanwhile, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Once the mince has browned, drain and discard any excess fat and season with salt and pepper. Add the garlic and tomato puree, stir-fry for 30 secs.

Stir in the red wine jus paste, Italian style herbs and water for the sauce (see ingredients for amount). Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until the sauce has thickened, 10-12 mins, stirring occasionally. Add a splash of water if it gets too thick. IMPORTANT: The mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

Meanwhile, grate the cheese. Once the mince is cooked, lay the tortillas onto a lightly oiled baking tray and spoon the Bolognese onto one half of each one. Top with the cheese.

Rub a little oil over the top of each quesadilla, then bake on the top shelf of your oven until golden, 6-8 mins.

While the quesadillas bake, cut the tomato into 1cm pieces and add to a large bowl with a drizzle of oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Just before you're ready to serve, add the baby leaf mix to the tomatoes and toss to coat. TIP: Don't do this too early or the leaves will go soggy.

Once golden, transfer the Bolognese quesadillas (2 per person) to your plates. Serve the salad alongside drizzled with the balsamic glaze. Enjoy!
