Angel Hair Pasta With Bolognese Sauce
I just had a hearty Bolognese Sauce with angel hair pasta. I made the meat sauce with fresh button mushrooms and it's delish!
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1 White Onion,finely chopped
3 cloves Garlic, finely chopped
400g fresh Button Mushrooms, sliced
800g fresh Roma Tomatoes, skin, seeded, diced
1 tin(796ml) Roma Tomatoes,drained, seeded, diced
1 tin(156ml) Tomato Paste
2 Tbsp Bovril
600g Ground Beef
2 Tbsp Fresh Italian Parsley, finely chopped
3 Tbsp Fresh Basil, coarsely chopped
2 tsp Fresh Oregano, finely chopped
1 dried Bay leaf
1/2 cup Red Wine
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Sea Salt to taste
Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese
1 packet (350g) Fresh Angel Hair Pasta
In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over a medium heat. Add the onions and saute until golden brown, for about 15 minutes. Add the garlic and saute for another 5 minutes.
Add the ground beef and cook the meat until the meat is no longer pink. Then add the mushrooms and saute until the mushrooms are cooked.
Add the freshly diced roma tomatoes and cook for 15 minutes. Then add the tin tomatoes, bovril, tomato paste and red wine. Bring it to boil and add all herbs and let it simmer on a low heat for another 40 to 50 minutes.
Adjust the seasoning with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. To serve, top the pasta with some freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano.
