Spaghetti Bolognese Recipe

Ok so November has arrived and it it seems to have brought the cold weather with it so I have started to cook some of the dishes I associate as being "Winter Warmers". One of these meals is spaghetti bolognese.

Now I think this is one of those meals where everyone seems to have their own variations, so here is mine :


* Fresh Spaghetti
* 500g Fresh Beef Mince
* 200g Cooking Bacon
* 3 Carrots
* 1 Large Onion, diced
* 1 Tin of Chopped Tomatoes
* 2 tbsps of Tomato Puree
* 150ml Red Wine
* Oregano

spaghetti bolognese ingredients


* In a large pan, fry the onions until golden.
* Add the mince, make sure it is all browned and then drain the fat.
* Pour in the remaining ingredients, the carrots, bacon, chopped tomatoes, tomato puree, oregano and wine.
* Leave to simmer for 30 minutes, whilst waiting enjoy the remainder of the wine ;)

* After 25 minutes, cook the spaghetti as per instructions on the packet.
* Serve in a bowl accompanied by some garlic bread.

A simple yet scrummy dinner that is perfect for the whole family!! So how do you make your spaghetti bolognese?
