A simple bolognese sauce perfect for any dish


  • 750g of Asda 100% Butchers Selection Beef Mince (or mince of choice, frozen, pork, etc)
  • Small tin of Asda sliced mushrooms
  • Large tin of plummed tomatoes
  • Napolina tomato puree (double concentrate)
  • 1 large onion (diced)
  • Herbs (to taste) – I put in Paprika, Chives, Sage, Basil
  • 2 garlic pieces – crushed and chopped


  1. Dice up the onion into small chunks and put it in a small pan to heat and soften on a medium temperature
  2. Whilst the onion is browning, add the beef mince to a large pot on an average heat (3-4 out of 6 on mine) and fully brown the mince
  3. Keep mixing the onions, they should be soft enough so put them to one side
  4. When mince is browned, squeeze in some tomato puree and mix together with the mince until it absorbs the colour
  5. Add the onions, add the tomatoes (with juice), drain and add the sliced mushrooms, add the garlic and mix well
  6. Add in any herbs to desired taste and cook for around 10 mins on a medium temp until warmed through
  7. Combine this with Pasta and have a great tasting spaghetti bolognese, let it cool to a low temp before freezing
