The Best Spaghetti Bolognaise Recipe

Spaghetti Bolognese recipe

At last, something I can write about with real confidence. Spaghetti Bolognaise. This is the best recipe ever, trust me, I have done the research.

For four people, you will need:

1 red onion, finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
Organic lean minced beef (ideally 5% fat)
4 large carrots
3 leeks
Vegetable stock
Olive oil
500g passata
Spaghetti

Fry your finely chopped red onion with crushed garlic in a little olive oil in a large saucepan.

Add the mince and chop and turn over and keep stirring on a low-medium heat at first.

Once it has browned all over, turn up the heat a little to give it a good frying and pour in some boiling water to cover the meat completely. Stir again.

Wash and peel your carrots and then bring the peeler over to the saucepan and peel the entire carrot into long ribbons for a really sweet meaty sauce.

It looks like quite a lot of carrot but don’t worry, it will melt down beautifully. Add a little extra water to cover the ingredients and a heaped tablespoon of good quality vegetable stock and stir.
