ITALIAN FOOD - Spaghetti Bolognese

This is my second favourite Italian Dish and there are two ways of making it.

1. The easy way but still very tasty
2. The hard way but allows to suit to personal taste

The easy way on how to make Spaghetti Bolognese is to buy pre-made ingredients. You will need Spaghetti Pasta, a Jar of Bolognese Sauce (My personal favourite is Dolmio), 500 grams of Beef Mince (Feeds 3 - 4) and your favourite brand of Cheese, if you like Cheese that is.

1. To begin, you must insert the mince into a saucepan on full heat and stir until the mince has browned.
2. Then drain the fat and reduce the heat to low.
3. Add the sauce and stir well.
4. Allow the mince and sauce to simmer for 20 minutes stir occasionally.
5. 10 minutes into the mince simmering, insert the desired amount of spaghetti into a sauce pan with boiling water. (That way you will time the meal to perfection.)
6. During the last 10 minutes of cooking time, as well as stirring the mince and sauce occasionally. You may wish to take the opportunity to grate the cheese.
7. After the 20 minutes of simmering the mince and 10 minutes of boiling the spaghetti, your meal will now be ready to serve.
8. Drain the water from the spaghett and serve. My personal way of serving is to put the spaghetti on the plate first, followed by the mince and then top it with a sprinkle of cheese.

The hard way of making spaghetti bolognese which may be preferable to you, is to make your own bolognese sauce. Please click the link below to see my personal recipe.
