Spaghetti Bolognese

Spaghetti Bolognese is a classic Italian meal which is surprisingly simple to make. Most Spaghetti Bolognese recipes will include celery and red wine but I have left these out to adapt the recipe to my personal taste/requirements. (Sorry about the photo being taken after I'd drowned mine in cheese!)

You will need:

1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 Onion
2 Carrots
A Handful of Mushrooms
1 Clove of Garlic
500g Mince Beef
1 tsp Dried Oregano
1 tbsp Tomato PureƩ
1 Tin of Chopped Tomatoes (400g)
400ml Beef Stock
Splash of Milk
1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce

Equipment: Knife, saucepan, wooden spoon, can opener, 


1. Slice the mushrooms, dice the onion and carrots and crush the garlic.

 2. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan and add the carrots, onion, mushrooms and crushed garlic. Cook for 5 mins.

 3. Add the minced beef and continue cooking until the beef has browned.

5. Add the oregano and tomato pureƩ and stir through.

6. Add the can of chopped tomatoes, followed by the beef stock, milk and Worcestershire sauce.

7. Stir through, bring to the boil and simmer for about an hour. (While this is cooking the spaghetti can be cooked according to the instructions)

 8. Serve the bolognese sauce on a plate of spaghetti.
