No snoozing, just newsing
One of the first recipes that we tried out when we started to introduce more plant-based meals to Amelie Rose’s galley, this fabulous vegetarian bolognaise sauce has become a firm favourite with all our crews.

Lunches under-way are always a bit of a conundrum; ideally they need to be hot on a cold day, cold on a hot day, tasty on any day but also hand-held and not too tricky to put together in a galley that persists in moving around.
