Extra Vegetables in Bolognese

I made some concentrated bolognese yesterday, but I think it might be too calorie dense, so I want to stretch it a bit.
What vegetables can I add in to stretch it a bit more without compromising the flavour profile?

      Not really what I had in mind. I want to make it more filling without adding too many kcal.

      At least with the garlic you can stave off the vampire horde.

    So you want to counter that by adding more calories?

      yes. vegetables usually have low calorie counts. so, if I add them to the sauce, the weight will increase faster than calories and I'll get fewer calories per 100g of food.
      it's not rocket science.

        Eat less you frickin moron. The majority of calories come from the pasta anyway.

          that's dumb and not a solution.

          not really, the sauce has meat in it.

              how? fiber that's found in vegetables is a hunger suppressant and has been used throughout history to stretch sauces like this further. As for an actual recommendation for op rather than moronic b***hing I think green peppers or finely chopped broccoli are good choices if you want to keep protein high while lowering calorie density.

          I think this is good advice if you consider that more caloric density = more satisfaction. A stomach bloated with vegetables is full but not satisfied.

      I hadn't considered fresh tomatoes. I'll have to try it. Celery sounds nice too. Thanks.

        No problem, you could also try courgette or zucchini depending where you live (name wise)

    You should be using carrots, onions and celery in your bolognese sauce anyway. About half vegetables and half meat gets delicious results.

    Zucchini and summer squash, make sure to salt them and let them lose a little fluid first unless you want a runny sauce

    I take it you've already put in some carrots, celeriac and onions? You can always double the volumes, it will only make it taste better. You can also add mushrooms and olives and even capers. It won't be a bolognese anymore but it's still tasty. Charred tomatoes is pretty nice as well. Like some Anon said, if you want to cut down calories you should skip the pasta all together

    Mushrooms. You can finely chop them and the texture will be similar too.
