This sauce is ideal for spaghetti, but can be used with any kind of pasta – great for Lasagna as well. This uses simple ingredients but is very tasty nonetheless!
1 pack of mince
- 1/2 Onion, finely chopped
- 3 cloves of garlic, either crushed or finely chopped
- 1 beef oxo cube
- 1 tin of chopped tomatoes
- 1 tube of tomato puree
- Oregano or mixed herbs
- Red wine
- Olive oil
Fry the onion on low heat in a little bit of oil.
Add the garlic when they become slightly translucent.
Wait a few minutes, and add the mince. Turn the heat up to a medium temperature.
Keep stirring the mince to avoid sticking and burning.
Turn the heat down to a low temperature when the mince is thoroughly cooked (brown but not burnt).
Add the oxo cube and stir in.
Add the tin of chopped tomatoes and stir.
Add a small amount of herbs, usually around 1 teaspoon.
Pour in a good glug of wine, no more than half a small glass and stir until the wine has mixed in.
Add tomato puree to thicken. Use anywhere between half a tube and a whole one.
Leave on a low heat to simmer and improve the flavour.
