What would any recipe blog be without a classic bolognaise! This recipe was passed down for my mum, its just a basic bolognaise recipe, but it really is delicious. I tend to eat it without pasta as a full meal, but if you're having pasta then you could stretch the servings further, say double as many portions. You can of course use a vegetarian alternative to the beef. I very rarely eat red meat any more, so this is a rare treat, or cooked when I have non-vegetarian guests.

Serves: 3

250g extra lean minced beef
400g tinned tomatos
1/2 red pepper
1/2 yellow pepper
8 mushrooms
1 tbsp ketchup
50g celery
1 large onion
2 cloves garlic
2g basil
2g parsley
4g oregano

Slice the onions and garlic and dry fry, or fry with a little water so it doesn't stick.
Once the onions have started to soften, add the chopped mushrooms, peppers, and herbs.
Once all the veg is soft, add the minced meat.
Once the meat is browned, add in the chopped tomatoes and ketchup.
You can eat it straight away, but trust me it won't taste anywhere near as good as it will if you leave it to simmer for 45 mins, stirring occasionally.
