Simple Bolognese


One of my all time favorite meals is Bolognese, not sure how traditional Italian it is probably a British version based on how my Mum made it. Its easy to make only a few ingredients needed, and is wonderful to freeze to have on hand for times you have limited time to cook. A jar of sauce is really not needed :-)

Ingredients:

  • one pack of extra lean minced beef (hamburger meat in the US)
  • 4 cloves of chopped garlic
  • one small onion chopped
  • about 5 chopped tomatoes, canned can also be used
  • a generous tablespoon of Italian herbs and 2 bay leaves
  • olive oil
  • about 10 sliced mushrooms 
  • 2 small diced carrots and any other vegetables I add for the extra nutritional value :-)
Method:

  1. brown the beef with garlic and onions for 5 minutes 
  2. add mushrooms and carrot and herbs for 3 minutes 
  3. add tomatoes, herbs and bay leaves and simmer on low for 30 minutes 
  4. its as simple as that!
  5. serve with spaghetti or any desired pasta
