Spaghetti Bolognaise

Spaghetti Bolognaise
This is my quick and easy recipe for this Italian favourite.


500g spaghetti
1 large onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tblsp olive oil
500g minced beef/lamb
1 litre passata/chopped tomatoes (use a good brand otherwise the sauce will taste watery)
1 small tin of chopped tomatoes and meat
3 tsps salt
3 tsps basil
3 tsps parsley
10cl orange juice


1. In a large saucepan of boiling salted water cook the pasta
2. In a medium saucepan, heat the oil gently
3. Add onions and garlic, stir constantly for 1-2 mins
4. Add the mince meat, salt, 2 tsps basil and 2 tsps parsley
5. Stir constantly until the meat starts to brown
6. Add the tin of tomato & meat and the passata
7. Add the rest of the herbs and orange juice
8. Stir until well mixed
9. Simmer over a low heat for 5-10 mins

Hey presto! Serve with grated cheese and crusty bread.

Never heard of orange juice in sauce bolognese - I'll have to try it. I make sure the sauce is done before I cook pasta - I don't like it overcooked...

Bon apetit!
