Spaghetti bolognese is a classic. Very simple recipe with no much ingredients. But small tricks transform it to a delicious dish for the whole family including toddlers.
Ingredients for 4 people:
- 300g ground beef
- one large chopped onion
- two big chopped garlic clove
- puree of 2 medium tomatoes
- 1 tsp cognac
- 1 tsp sugar
In a casserole pan on a medium heat add a splash of olive oil and cook the onion and garlic with a dash of salt, only for 5 minutes before adding the ground beef.
When the meat starts to brown add the tomato puree with a cup of water.
When it starts to boil add the cognac and sugar. Don’t worry about alcohol for your kids, cooking will take it away.
Cook for 15 minutes on medium flame, then serve it on a bed of spaghetti.
Sprinkle over a little parmesan for a deeper flavour!
