This was always my favorite food as a kid. But I had never heard anyone call it "Bolognaise" since I lived in England back in the 1970's. Here in Canada, it was just called "spaghetti sauce". I talked to my Mum in England, she gave me her recipe. I tried it and it was exactly as I remembered it. Yum
- 500g minced beef
- Can of chopped tomatoes 400g
- 2 large tbsp of tomato purée
- approx 2 tbsp of oil
- 1 large onion
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1 largish teaspoon of sugar
- 1 tbsp plain flour
- Salt and black pepper to taste
- Chop onion.
- Finely, crush garlic.
- Heat the oil and fry the meat until it is no longer pink.
- Add onion then garlic and fry until the onion is softened.
- Add flour. Stir.
- Add tinned tomatoes and tomato purée.
- Add can of water and the seasoning.
- Bring to boil
- Turn down to simmering. Simmer on low flame for approx. 25 to 30 mins.
- Adjust seasoning to your taste.
Serve over spaghetti. Generously sprinkle freshly shredded parmesan cheese. I like to add a side of broccoli and carrots (but that's just me 🙂).
