Spaghetti Bolognaise

Everyone loves a good spag bol – and this is an easy but yummy recipe that includes mushrooms, carrots, celery, beef stock and Worcestershire sauce for extra flavour. The beef mince sauce needs a long, slow cooking to develop richness but that’s simple; you don’t need to worry about it while it’s bubbling away. Then just add your pasta and grated parmesan for the perfect spaghetti bolognaise.
