Bolognese sloppy joes, easy spaghetti bolognese recipe, easy family food from daisies and pie

I make no apologies for stuffing spaghetti bolognese into bread rolls, it tastes good, especially with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese. A quick and easy kid-friendly dinner. 

A bolognese sloppy joe is a great way to use up any leftover bolognese or you could, if you fancy, just make the bolognese with or without the spaghetti and serve it this way anyway (did I mention it tastes good?)
