Israeli couscous bolognese
This is a recipe for bolognese that my kids really love and that features regularly at my table. I think it’s even better than the pasta.
The Israeli couscous soaks up all the sauce and it tastes even better. Plus, it’s so easy to make!
This is a simple recipe that doesn’t require much effort and the kids love it.
