Day 6 – Bolognese

Tonight we needed an easy meal, something we had in the house and that didn’t need a hundred and one new ingredients. Bolognese was the answer. This bolognese is my bolognese. I don’t have a recipe and it’s unlikely to be accurately ‘Italian’. But it tastes good, cooks quick and fills you up better than bread.




Sea Salt






Mixed Herbs

I’d love to make a true Italian Bolognese just to see how they compare but to be honest, this tastes like bolognese to us and it tastes good so who cares if it’s not true Italian.



Gently fry the onion and mushrooms in a frying panuntil soft.


Drizzle with oil and add a crushed garlic clove or two. Put to one side.


Cook off the mince until brown. Add salt and pepper. Add the oregano and mixed herbs to taste.


Add the the mushrooms and onions back in a stir while continuing to heat.


Add the carton on passata. Stir through.


Leave to simmer and reduce down until the sauce becomes thicker.

And that really is it. Cook up some pasta, stir it in and serve caked in parmesan. Garlic bread optional.
