This is a super quick and easy sauce that tastes rich without being oily. I like to use a thick spaghetti or bucatini
- small tin tomato paste
- 2 tins peeled tomatoes
- 500g mince beef
- 1 clove garlic, smashed
- 1 small red chilli (slice through nearly to end)
- 3 bacon stock cubes
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a largish saucepan, add garlic and chilli and cook gently for 1 minute. Add tin tomatoes, tomato paste and mince beef. Stir through to thoroughy mix. Break up tomatoes by mashing them with either a fork or potato masher. Add bacon cubes. Cook for 10 minutes. Remove garlic and chilli.
Serve with freshly grated parmesan, black pepper and chopped basil.
Serves 4 (generously)
