Try this easy way to cook pasta and you will thank me later


Garlic (2 cloves) 

1 big onion 

Fresh rosemary (2 sprigs) 

Dry-cured higher-welfare smoked streaky bacon (6 rashers) 

Olive oil Minced beef (500 grams)

Red wine (200 ml)

280 g jar of sun-dried tomatoes 

400 g tin of plum tomatoes (2) 

Dried spaghetti (500 grams) 

Parmesan cheese 

Virgin olive oil

Method of preparation

* Let your oven maintain a temperature of about 180°C. 

*While that is on, wash, peel and chop the onion and garlic nicely. Do the same for the rosemary and the bacon. 

*Then, pour a splash of oil inside the saucepan, and place over moderate heat.

Add all of your chopped ingredients and cook for about five minutes while stirring occasionally.

* Next is to add the minced beef. You can use the back of a spoon to break them apart while you cook for two to three minutes, or until it starts to brown.

Also, pour in the wine and allow to simmer. *Drain the sun-dried tomatoes and pour inside a food processor.

* Once you have done that, beat to a paste. Then, add the tomatoes and transfer into the pan with the tomatoes.

Stir the whole mixture well, and make sure you break the plum tomatoes apart a little. *Cover with a lid and then place in the oven for an hour. Remove the lid and stir it after thirty minutes. If it looks a little dry at this stage, add a little water.

Ten minutes before the cooking time is up, cook the spaghetti in boiling salted water according to the instructions, and then follow these steps:

Drain the spaghetti and reserve a mugful of the cooking water. 

* Then, turn it into the pan with a few spoons of Bolognese, nicely grated Parmesan and a little of virgin olive oil.

Toss to coat the spaghetti, loosening with a splash of the cooking water if needed. *Divide the spaghetti into bowls and add a spoonful of Bolognese to each. Serve with a fine grating of Parmesan
