400g Darts Farm Master Butchers’ beef mince

400g  spaghetti

1 onion, diced

2 x Darts Farm courgettes

2 garlic cloves, chopped

100g carrot, grated

2 x 400g tins chopped tomatoes

100ml beef or vegetable stock

2tbsp olive oil

Salt & Pepper




Heat a large saucepan over medium heat. Add a tablespoon of olive oil and once hot add the beef mince and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook the mince until well-browned over a medium-high heat. Once browned, transfer the mince to a bowl and set aside.

Add another tablespoon of oil to the saucepan and turn the heat to medium. Add onions, courgettes and a pinch of salt and fry gently for 5-6 minutes, or until softened. Add the garlic and cook for another 2 minutes. Add the grated carrot, then pour the mince and any juices in the bowl back into the saucepan.

Add the tomatoes to the pan and stir well to mix. Pour in the stock, bring to a simmer and then reduce the temperature to simmer gently for 45 minutes, or until the sauce is thick and rich. Taste and adjust the seasoning as necessary.

When ready to cook the spaghetti, heat a large saucepan of water and add a pinch of salt. Cook according to the packet instructions. Once spaghetti is cooked through, drain and add to the pan with the Bolognese sauce. Mix well and serve.

In a rush?

...One of our favourite alternatives to homemade sauce is Mr Organics 'Healthier Choice' Bolognese sauce - they have no added sugar & reduced salt!
