Hello and welcome to my Bolognese recipe
- 250g minced beef
- one large onion
- 2 to 3 cloves of garlic
- 2 to 3 stalks of celery
- 2 carrots
- two tins chopped tomatoes
- tomatoes puree
- dried mixed herbs (or herbs of choice)
- spaghetti or pasta
Start by adding the mince meat to a frying pan with a little oil and brown
While this is browning peel and finely chop the onion and add to meat .
Once brown grate in the carrot and finely chop and add the celery to the frying pan .
Stir these in a give them a few minutes to soften
Next add two to three table spoons of puree and stir ,again giving a few minutes to cook
Add the two tines of chopped tomatoes and chopped garlic , stir reduce temp and simmer for 10-15 mins. (keep stirring as this is not a runny sauce and can burn if left )
Put pasta in a pan of boiling water ,add salt and cook
Once sauce has simmered add dried mixed herbs and simmer for a few minutes while you drain pasta .
Add pasta to the plate and serve sauce on top . cheddar or parmesan is yummy on top
This is not a runny sauce but if that is what you prefer add more chopped tomatoes or a little water while simmering .
Left overs can be kept in the fridge and are yummy cold or re heated over jacket potatoes ( always ensure re heated completely )
Seasonal veg can also be added , pumpkin ect
