This is a fairly simple bolognese recipe but also fairly authentic. There are already plenty of vegetables but feel free to add more like zucchini and green beans.
I don't like celery and substituted with mushrooms and only had about 150ml wine but used that anyway. Found one ctn of passata and one tin of tomatoes enough. A really rich, tomatoey, tasty bolognese. Just the job. - 09 Aug 2011 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
Cooked this for the first time, used smoked bacon, added musrooms used probably 2 pinches of all the spices, best spag bol i've had in a long time, will deff do again - 23 Jan 2012 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
Added a large spoonful of Marmite, to balance the tomatoes with some beefy flavours. Needs a good hour and half simmering though - and more than 30 mins for the wine to evaporate. But it's worth the wait - and even better reheated with loads of parmesan and black pepper. DEFINITELY one to make again! - 25 Oct 2009 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
