Hearty Beef and Bacon Bolognese recipe


This is a yummy pasta sauce with beef and bacon. It has tomatoes, milk, and wine. You cook it for a long time to make it taste really good. Then you put it on noodles and add cheese.


3 Bay Leaves
350 ml Milk
700 g Beef Mince
2 x (400 g) Tinned Tomatoes
4 Cloves of Garlic
2 Celery Sticks
2 Carrots
1 Large Onion
500 g Spaghetti
150 ml Red Wine
250 g Smoked Bacon
50 g Parmesan Cheese (To Serve)
1 tsp Dried Oregano
1 tsp Dried Basil


Chop the bacon into bite-size pieces and fry in a large pan until crispy. Remove and set aside.
In the same pan, add the beef mince and cook until browned. Break it up with a spoon as it cooks.
Add the finely chopped onion, minced garlic cloves, diced celery sticks, and diced carrots to the pan with the beef. Cook until the vegetables are soft.
Pour in the red wine and let it reduce for about 2 minutes on high heat.
Add the tinned tomatoes, milk, bay leaves, dried oregano, and dried basil. Stir well.
Bring the sauce to a boil, then reduce the heat to a low simmer. Cover and cook for 90 minutes, stirring occasionally. If the sauce is too thick, add a little water.
After 90 minutes, remove the lid, add the crispy bacon back into the sauce, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Let it simmer uncovered for another 15 minutes.
While the sauce is finishing, cook the spaghetti according to the package instructions.
Drain the spaghetti and toss it with the bolognese sauce.
Serve the pasta with grated Parmesan cheese on top.
