Recipe by happygurl06
READY IN: 1hr 20mins




  • Pulse all the veggies in a blender until they are chopped fine.
  • Do the same with the bacon.
  • Heat olive oil in a large frying pan and sauté the veggies until onion and celery are transparent.
  • Add the bacon and cook for 3 minutes.
  • Add the minced meat and cook until well browned.
  • Add the tomato paste, basil and oregano; cook for 2 minutes to let the flavour of the herbs and paste come out.
  • Add the canned tomatoes including their juice.
  • Dissolve the beef bouillon and sugar in the water and add to the pan.
  • Simmer for 1 hour or until the sauce is thick and not runny. If the water evaporates too quickly, top it up as the long cooking is what makes this taste great.
  • Serve over cooked pasta of your choice or layer with lasagna sheets and a good bechemal sauce for a yummy lasagna.
  • For adaptation to crockpot: Brown mince and onion then add all ingredients to crock pot and cook on low for 5 hours or more.
