Ingredients

  • 500g Lean beef mince (5% fat or less)
  • 1 Onion, very finely chopped
  • 8 Rashers of back bacon (all visible fat removed), finely chopped
  • 4 Celery stalks, finely chopped
  • 2 Carrots, very finely diced
  • 4 Garlic cloves, crushed
  • 200g Button mushrooms, finely diced
  • 500ml Beef stock 400g can chopped plum tomatoes
  • 6 tbsp Tomato purée
  • 1 Bay leaf
  • 1 tsp Dried oregano
  • 375g Dried spaghetti
  • A handful of fresh oregano, to garnish

Method

  • Place the mince in a large heavy-based pan with the onion, bacon, celery, carrots and garlic. Dry-fry over a medium heat, stirring from time to time, for 8-10 minutes to brown the mince and lightly colour the veg.
  • Add the mushrooms and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes. Add the stock, tomatoes, tomato purée, bay leaf and dried oregano. Season well, stir and bring to the boil, then simmer very gently for 30-40 minutes, uncovered, stirring occasionally.
  • Increase the heat to medium and let the sauce bubble for a further 10 minutes, or until rich and thick. Stir regularly so it doesn’t stick.
  • Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti according to the pack instructions. Drain well and divide between warmed bowls. Top with the Bolognese (removing the bay leaf), garnish with the oregano and serve.
