This recipe is enough for 5 people, or you can have the leftovers...?



  • A splash of oil
  • 1 onion
  • 1 clove garlic (or if you're feeling lazy, 1 teaspoon of already chopped)
  • 500g beef mince
  • 400g chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 glass of red wine
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of vegetable stock
  • 500g pasta/spaghetti
  • any herbs and spices you like (maybe some basil..?)
  • cheese to top it off


Chop the onion and garlic.

put them in a pan with a splash of oil.

cook the onions and then add the mince- cook until it has browned.

add the chopped tomatoes and stir, then add the red wine and vegetable stock.

add in some herbs, such as basil.

turn down the heat and leave to cook, while doing the pasta.

in another pan, add 1 litre of water, and boil on a high temperature.

pour in the pasta/spaghetti and leave to cook for the recommended time on the packet (usually about 10 mins)

when the pasta is soft, drain the water in a colander then mix it in with the bolognaise sauce.

grate some cheese and sprinkle it over the top.
