Recently, Kenwood teamed up with Julie and Sam Burgess to demonstrate how they prepare a meal before a big game.

As you can imagine, feeding the four Burgess brothers wouldnt be easy. Their classic pre-game meal must contain plenty of carbohydrates and nutritional value, so what better than the classic dish, Spaghetti Bolgnaise.

To learn how Julie and her four sons, Sam, Luke, George and Tom, cook their Spaghetti Bolognaise check out the video and recipe below.

Spaghetti Bolognaise

1 packet of fresh fettuccine pasta, cooked per packet instructions


50g feta, crumbled
