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.

Ingredients

Mince

Sea Salt

Onion

Mushrooms

Garlic

Passata

Oregano

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.

Steps

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.
