At The Fresh Farm, we’re suckers for a bit of classic grub. Spaghetti Bolognese is one of those dishes which everyone of us remembers eating growing up. Some kids got it with carrots and mushrooms in (like ours) and others without. Our secret is adding Worcestershire Sauce for that extra tang. Mmmm… my mouth is watering at the thought! Get cooking!

Bring a large pot of water to the boil with ½ tsp of salt (in preparation for your pasta). Peel and chop your onion and carrots into 1cm pieces, peel and finely chop your garlic. Chop your mushrooms and celery stick into roughly 1cm pieces.
Add 2 tbsp of oil to a frying pan on medium heat and add your onion, carrots, garlic and celery. Cook for 5 mins until the onion is soft. If the onion picks up a bit of colour, that’s fine! After 5 mins, add your chopped mushrooms and cook for a further 5 mins until they are soft and have cooked down.
Split your sausages lengthways. LH: squeeze out the meat and discard the skins. Add the sausage meat to the pan and break it up with a wooden spoon. Fry for 6 mins or until the sausage meat is browned.
Add the chopped tomatoes to the pan along with your Worcestershire sauce, tomato purée and stock pot. Refill your chopped tomato tin a quarter with water and add this to the pan as well. Stir until the stock pot is dissolved and everything is mixed. Bring to a simmer and cook uncovered on medium-low heat for 15 mins, until the sauce has reduced and is thick and delicious.
While the bolognese is cooking, give your kitchen a quick clean, you may even get all your washing up done before dinner has started! Grate your parmesan.
Halfway through your bolognese simmering time, add your spaghetti to the boiling water and cook for 7 mins in total.
When your bolognase is rich and delicious, add the spinach and stir through until it wilts. Drain your pasta and serve it in bowls with a good serving of bolognase and a spinkle of your grated parmesan. Roughly tear your basil leaves and scatter over the dish.
