Dinner, Family, Pasta
beef mince/ground beef
peeled and finely chopped
fresh thyme sprigs
sprig fresh rosemary
x 400g tins Italian tomatoes
salt & pepper to taste
spaghetti/pasta of your choice
finely grated Parmesan
Brown the beef in a large pot in batched until well browned. Remove from the pot and set aside.
In the same pot, add a splash of oil and fry the onion, carrot and celery for 10-15 minutes until soft and fragrant.
Add the garlic, bay leaf, thyme and rosemary and fry for another minute.
Add the beef back to the pot and add the tomatoes and beef stock.
Lower the heat so the sauce simmers and cover. Allow to cook for 30 minutes. If the sauce is too watery, remove the lid for the last 10 minutes of simmering so the liquid can reduce.
In the meantime, cook the pasta in a big pot of boiling salted water.
Serve the bolognese with the cooked spaghetti and a generous grating of Parmesan.
