Spaghetti Bolognese


1 tbsp olive oil
1 large onion , diced
1 red pepper, diced
3 garlic cloves, crushed
750g beef mince
4 tbsp tomato purée
50ml balsamic vinegar
2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes
1 beef stock
75g salami , chopped
400g spaghetti, shredded basil leaves and grated Parmesan, to serve

Heat the oil in a large casserole and cook the onion and pepper for 3-4 mins until beginning to soften. Stir in the garlic, cook for 1 min, then add the mince and cook until browned.

Stir in the tomato purée, balsamic vinegar, chopped tomatoes and stock cube. Bring to the boil, turn down to a simmer, put on the lid and cook, stirring every so often, for 20 mins.

Remove half the Bolognese, leave to cool, then put in a lidded container and keep in the fridge for tomorrow. Add the chopped salami to the pan and continue to cook. Meanwhile, bring a large pan of water to the boil and cook the pasta following pack instructions. Season the Bolognese mixture, serve with the spaghetti and scatter over the basil and Parmesan.
