Spaghetti bolognese is a true Italian favorite. Try it by following the steps. 

Method: 

Preheat your oven to 180 °C.

Put a casserole pan on a medium heat, add a splash of olive oil and then cook the bacon, rosemary, garlic and onion for about 5 minutes, stirring now and then until soft.

Add the mince. Let it cook for a couple of minutes until starting to brown.

Drain and blend the sun-dried tomatoes in a food processor. Add them to the mince with the tinned tomatoes. Stir well and break the plum tomatoes apart a little.

Cover with a lid then cook in the hot oven for 1 hour. Remove the lid after 30 minutes, and if it looks a little dry, add a splash of water.


About 10 minutes before the time is up, cook the spaghetti according to packet instructions. Drain and then return the spaghetti to the hot pan with a few spoons of Bolognese, a good grating of Emborg Parmesan/Grana Padano and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Mix it about to coat the spaghetti and to stop it becoming sticky, loosening with a splash of hot water if needed.

Divide the spaghetti between your plates or bowls, add a good spoonful of Bolognese to each one, and a little Parmesan before serving.
 

Voilá - enjoy!
