Makes a fantastic spaghetti bolognese or lasagne!



  • 900g minced beef
  • 1 beef stock cube
  • 2 onions
  • 4 cloves of fresh garlic
  • 2 cans of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tsp tomato purée
  • salt, pepper, basil, oregano, rosemary
  • worcester sauce


- finely chop onions and garlic and leave to one side.

- fry mince on a high heat until brown all over. (high heat is important as mince will go grey on lower heat).

- add chopped onions and garlic and stir in.

- dissolve 1 beef stock cube into 1/4 pint of boiling water and pour into mince, stir thoroughly.

- add 2 cans of chopped tomatoes and 1 tsp of tomato purée. Stir thoroughly.

- time to season it. Add a dash of salt and pepper. 1 tbsp basil, 1 tbsp oregano and a dash of rosemary. Stir until herbs are evenly distributed amongst your bolognese.

- finally for a bit of extra kick add a few splashes of worcester sauce and stir in.

- your bolognese is finished! Enjoy with spaghetti or layer with sheets of lasagne pasta and white sauce for a lasagne. Simple!
