Truffle Pig Bolognese.........

Cows and pigs are barn yard friends and are even better friends in a big bowl of bolognese! I have finally mastered the perfect bolognese sauce, which tastes even better the next day (they aways do).

What you need:

  • 250g beef mince
  • 250g pork mince
  • 2 rashers of bacon
  • 1.5 brown onions, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • Dried oregano & basil
  • 4 brown swiss mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 1 small carrot, finely chopped
  • 800g crushed tomatoes
  • 8 cherry tomatoes, coarsely chopped
  • 3 table spoons of tomato paste
  • Good quality parmesan
  • Pasta either tagatelli or spaghetti

What you need to do:

  • Add the onion and garlic into a heated pot with a splash of olive oil and let them sweat
  • Add the veggies, herbs, tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, tomato pasta
  • Fry the bacon and brown the mince before adding to the sauce
  • Cook the sauce for as long as possible on a low heat, stirring occasionally for the best flavour
  • Cook the pasta, preferably good quality pasta from the markets
  • Season the sauce to taste before stirring the sauce through and topping it off with basil and parmesan

*Tip: add a big pile of spinach on top save yourself making a salad, it tastes delightful!

Think your bolognese is better than mine? Send me your recipe so I can test it myself.

Oink oink,

Truffle Pig.
