This iconic recipe is an old favourite. In our house we mince our own meat. That way we know it is the genuine article and its flavoursome to boot!

Bolognese
  1. 2 tbsp. olive oil
  2. 2 cloves garlic
  3. 2 brown onions
  4. 2 tsp. salt
  5. 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  6. 1/3 cup white wine
  7. 500g mince beef (preferably homemade)
  8. 140g tomato paste (1 small carton)
  9. 6 cherry tomatoes or 1 large tomato
  10. 800g crushed/chopped tomatoes (2 tins)
  11. 4 cups stock (chicken, vegetable, beef- or you can use water)
  12. 1 bay leaf
  13. 1 bunch fresh oregano or parsley
Pasta
  1. Pasta (any kind- I used egg pasta) Cook the amount according to the number of servings and direction on the packet.
  2. 1 tsp. salt (This is for 4 people- add more if you are cooking more)
  3. 2 tbsp. olive oil
  4. Finish with fresh oregano or parsley and parmesan cheese.
Instructions
  1. 1. In a large saucepan or stock pot, add the olive oil, salt and pepper, garlic and onions. Sauté on a medium heat until soft. Deglaze in white wine.
  2. 2. Add the mince and using a wooden spoon, break up the meat. Cook for a few minutes or until meat is light brown and just cooked. Mix well.
  3. 3. Stir in the tomato paste then add in the fresh tomatoes. Allow mixture to simmer for a few minutes before adding the crushed tomatoes and stock/water.
  4. 4. Add the bay leaf and oregano/parsley.
  5. 5. Cook Bolognese on a low to medium heat and allow to simmer for 1 hour. If it is too thick, add another cup of water.
  6. 6. Before serving, heat the Bolognese in the oven at 180°C whilst cooking the spaghetti. (This will brown the top of the Bolognese and give it more flavour).
  7. 7. Fill a large saucepan with water and add the salt and olive oil. Once water is boiling, add the pasta and cook for approximately 3-5 minutes or according to packet instructions. To know if the spaghetti is ready either throw one strain on a vertical wall and if it sticks to it then it is ready. If it does not stick then cook it for a few more minutes. Or taste a strain- if its too hard to eat then it is not ready yet. If it has a little resistance to the teeth "Al dente" then it is cooked. Keep in mind that the spaghetti will keep cooking.
  8. 8. Once cooked, strain the spaghetti and take the Bolognese out of the oven. Toss the spaghetti through the Bolognese and serve. Sprinkle fresh oregano/ parsley and parmesan cheese on top. Enjoy!!
Notes
  1. You can also add a few rashers of chopped bacon when cooking the mince.
