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
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.
Wash and finely chop your leeks and add to the saucepan.
Cover with a lid and reduce to a low-medium heat for about an hour, stirring occasionally.
Add some passata (I used this small carton which is the perfect amount!)
Stir away! Bring some water to the boil in another saucepan and cook the spaghetti.
Top with your favourite cheese and enjoy a melt in the mouth spaghetti bolognaise!
