1tbspolive oilor whatever is available
3medium onions chopped
2garlic cloves crushed
3carrots peeled and chopped
Salt and ground black pepper to taste
Freshly grated parmesan or cheddar
Put oil in large pan and fry the onion on a high heat for around 5 minutes.
Add the garlic and mince and cook until brown. Add carrots, mushrooms, peppers and mixed herbs and cook for a further 3-4 minutes
Slowly stir in the tomatoes, tomato puree, beef stock and Worcester sauce and bring to the boil. Add salt and ground pepper to taste and cook on a medium heat for approximately 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Cook the spaghetti in a large pan of boiling water with a pinch of salt and a dash of oil (to prevent spaghetti sticking). Boil until the spaghetti is soft (about 10 -15 minutes).
Serve with the parmesan or grated cheddar and a large glass of red wine (optional, of course!)
Why not mix things up and use turkey mince for a healthier option (it's also cheaper than beef mince).
