  • Preparation Time10 mins
  • Cooking Time45 mins
  • Serves6
  • DifficultyMedium
4 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
2 garlic cloves, peeled, coarsely chopped
1 celery stalk, coarsely chopped
1 carrot, coarsely chopped
500g minced beef
1 (800g) tin crushed tomatoes
Handful flat leaf Italian parsley, chiffonade
8 fresh basil leaves, chiffonade
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
60g freshly grated Pecorino Romano cheese
1) Place the oil in a 6L pan, and heat over a medium-high heat. When it's almost smoking, add the onion and garlic and saute until the onions become very soft, about eight minutes. Add the celery and carrot and saute for five minutes.

2) Raise the heat to high and add the minced beef. Saute, stirring frequently and breaking up any large lumps, and cook until the meat is no longer pink, about eight minutes. Add the tomatoes, parsley and basil and cook over a medium-low heat until the sauce thickens, about half an hour.

3) Check for seasoning. When serving, garnish the bolognese sauce with grated Pecorino Romano cheese. Serve hot with pasta.
