Easy to make, cheap ingredients, great taste!



  • Serves 2
  • 1.5tsp olive oil
  • 250g Minced Beef
  • 1/2 of a Yellow Bell Pepper (diced)
  • 1/2 of a Green Bell Pepper (diced)
  • 1/2 an Onion (chopped)
  • 1tbsp chopped basil
  • Spaghetti


-Put the oil into a large saucepan and heat gently. Add the mince, and increase to a medium heat.

- Put the onion into the saucepan. Stir, and cook for 10 minutes.

- Put the diced peppers and basil into the saucepan, stir again. Cover the saucepan, and leave to simmer for 15 minutes.

- Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti. If it's fresh, it should only take about 4 minutes. If it's not, it can take 10 to 15 minutes.

- Drain the spaghetti, and place into the large bolognese saucepan. Take the pan off the heat, and mix the two together.

- Serve up into two bowels... bon appetite!
