A firm family favourite, this Bolgonese recipe is baked in the oven and includes half a lemon, which adds piquancy. Try it, it’s delicous. You will never go back to simmering in a pan again. There’s much less mess and a more full-bodied flavour.

Method

To Make Bolognese

1

Preheat oven to 180°C.

2

Heat oil in a non-stick frying-pan and fry pancetta, onions and garlic over a moderate heat until they begin to soften.

3

Add the beef mince and cook for 3–5 minutes, stirring frequently to break up any large pieces of mince before adding lemon and wine.

4

Quickly whizz diced and sun-dried tomatoes in a blender before adding them to the mince as well.

5

Reduce heat slightly and add oregano. Season with salt and pepper.

6

Cook for a further 10 minutes then transfer to a casserole dish. Bake for 90 minutes until sauce caramelises.

7

To cook pasta, bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Toss in spaghetti.

8

When cooked al dente (firm to the bite), drain into a colander and add a dash of olive oil and roughly chopped fresh basil.

9

Serve with grated Parmesan and a green salad if desired.
