The first time I cooked, I was 6 years old. Then I cooked my absolute favorite dish, spaghetti Bolognese. This happened more than 40 years ago. And yet today it is one of my absolute favorite dishes. I never get tired of it.
1 onion chopped
½ grated carrot
20g grated celeriac
1 ½ tablespoons tomato paste
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
600 g of beef mince
200ml beef stock
1 carton of chopped tomatoes
2 tsp oregano
1 tsp thyme
1 teaspoon sugar
100ml chopped black olives
2 bay leaves
salt and black pepper
Fry the vegetables soften the butter, fry the tomato paste and garlic at the end.
Pick up and place in a large saucepan. Fry the mince browned in oil in batches and place over the saucepan. Add salt, pepper, broth and crushed tomatoes. Dilute with water so that the sauce
get the desired texture. Season with oregano, thyme and sugar. Bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer over low heat for 2-3 hours. The longer the boil, the tastier it becomes.

Im pretty sure that this IS the best spagetti ever. Looks soooo yumm! Im drooling!
Thanks 🙂 I always craving for it 🙂
Oo this is pretty much the same as mine except I put in Worcestershire sauce! I’ve never tried adding chopped olives, think I may have to do this next time 😊
Yes please try the olives 🙂 Its make a big different and let me know what you thought of it. 🙂 I dont think I ever tasted Worchestershire sauce… What kind of sauce is it? 🙂
I don’t really know hot to describe it can be used as a condiment or in cooking! Lea & Perrins is the famous brand http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Worcestershire_sauce it’s delicious if you put it on cheese on toast before grilling!!
Thanks 🙂 I will try to find it or ask my kids buy some from UK when they come home to visite. Thanks for explaning it to me. Always fun with new stuff. 🙂
Sounds delicious. I brown my mince then put in up to a cup of milk and let it simmer, it tenderizes the meat beautifully! 🙂
Thats a good idea with milk. Never tryed that, just with cream. Thats make it heavenly. Have you tried with cream or creme fraiche? 🙂
No I haven’t, the milk is from Italian Marcella Hazan book that I love! 🙂
Sounds llike a very nice book. Never read it unfortently. As I cooked this disk for about a million times, I have tryed a lots of different ways to make a nice Bolognese. Some perfect and some not. I will keep on posting here the once I found heavenlt tasty 🙂
