Bolognaise My Way


  • Splash of Olive oil

  • 500g mince

  • 2 tbsp minced garlic

  • 1 large brown onion finely chopped

  • 1/2 carrot finely diced

  • 1/2 celery stick finely diced

  • 1 beef stock cubes

  • 2 tbsp fresh shredded parmesan cheese

  • ½ tsp cinnamon ground

  • 2 tbsp tomato paste

  • 1/4 cup white wine

  • 2 tins tomatos

  • 1 1/2 cups water

  • 1 bay leaf

  • Plain flour water

  • Salt and pepper


  • 1.

    Heat olive oil in a large saucepan and add the mince garlic and onion carrot and celery.

  • 2.

    Cook until browned and the mince has been broken up well.

  • 3.

    Add the parmesan cheese and the stock cubes, crumbled.

  • 4.

    Melt the cheese in and then add the wine.

    Stir in the cinnamon and tomato paste, then the tomatoes.

  • 6.

    Add the water.

  • 7.

    Cover and simmer for at least 1 hour stirring occasionally.

  • 8.

    Cook uncovered for 20 minutes.

  • 9.

    Make a thickening mixture – add ½ cup cold water to ¼ cup plain flour and mix with a fork until smooth. Add this to the sauce and cook for a further 5 mins till just right. Add salt to taste.

  • 10.

    Your sauce is now ready for use in lasagne spaghetti or baked potato’s.


This sauce is still delicious if you choose to omit the wine.

Cheat - leave one tin of tomato’s out and replace with a store bought pasta sauce.

i usually add extra wine, cinnamon, garlic powder and onion powder to taste...
