Spaghetti bolognese is one of the timeless dishes, which is so easy to make for your family, that it’s a favourite with mothers everywhere. Some people use a pre-prepared sauce from a jar to make a bolognese sauce, because they find when they make it from scratch, that the sauce can be a little bland.
There are little things you can do to make it a little less tasteless, and more unique though. Tips that are so simple, you could probably have an eye on Facebook or Cheekybingo while you’re letting it simmer. Take a look at this recipe for a family of four.
- 400g beef mince
- 1 large onion
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 tins of chopped tomatoes
- Lea and Perrins Worcestershire sauce
- 4 rashers of diced bacon
- 1 large carrot, chopped finely
- Seasoning: salt, pepper, basil, oregano, rosemary
- Spaghetti (amount depends on family size)
- Cook off the mince in a pan, until it has become brown and pliant all the way through. Then in a separate pan, fry off the onions and garlic gently until soft. Add them to the mince and stir together.
- Pour the chopped tomatoes into the pan and stir until the mince, tomato, onion and garlic is combined. Allow to simmer for a minute or two, and then add the Worcestershire sauce and seasoning.
- Pour the diced bacon and carrot pieces into the mixture. The bacon gives the taste a little extra, and the carrot is a way to both bulk up the mixture, and sneak vegetables into the kids dinner.
- Allow to simmer for up to 45 minutes, stirring occasionally, to bring out the juices, and add more herbs if a taste test proves it’s needed.
- Boil water in another pan, and cook the spaghetti for up to 12 minutes, until soft.
- Serve up together and enjoy.
