Today my boyfriend is going on holiday to Turkey, leaving me alone in the apartment. I’m happy for him though, to go on holiday and relax, but to be honest, I’d much rather see him at home….Enough about me and my problems!

What’s for dinner tonight?  Maybe this delicous, rich and rustic bolognese with spaghetti. Adults and kids love this! A perfectly delicous pasta meal. (And a good way to sneek veggies into the food. If your kid is picky, simply puré all the veggies and add them to the bolognese.)

1 pound ground beef
1 can of crushed italian tomatoes
1 green bell pepper
1 yellow onion
3 tablespoons ketchup (preferably Heinz)
1 cup vegetable stock
pinch of salt
pinch of sugar
pinch of pepper
splash of white dry wine
handful of fresh basil


Finely chop the onion and sweat it in a frying pan with a knob of butter and some olive oil for about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, chop the bell pepper and add it to the frying pan with ground beef. Fry for an additional 5 minutes.
Transfer the ground beef to a large casserole and add ketchup, tomatoes, vegetable stock, salt, suga, pepper and a splash of white dry wine.
Let the sauce cook and become friends for about 15 minutes on low-medium heat.  (meanwhile… cook spaghetti. Come on, you KNOW how to do that right?)
the last five minutes, add the basil and serve!
