Spaghetti al la Bolognese

A family favorite – just like my mother used to make.

Servings 4 persons, Preparation time 15 minutes, Cooking time: 80 minutes


  • 10 millilitre of olive oil
  • 1 onion
  • 100 grams of smoked bacon
  • Parsley
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 carrot
  • 70 grams of tomato paste
  • 300 grams of minced meat (beef)
  • ½ tablespoon of red pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of salt
  • Ground pepper to season
  • 30 millilitre of red wine
  • 2 tablespoons ofchopped basil
  • 200 grams of tomatoes (canned)
  • 200 millilitrel stock
  • ½ tablespoon sugar


  • Preheat the HomeCooker for 3 minutes at 175°C.
  • Add the olive oil, finely chopped onions and garlic and fry for 4 minutes at 175°C.
  • Add the minced meat and set the timer to 10 minutes at 175°C.
  • Add the tomato paste and set the timer to 3 minutes at 175°C.
  • Now add all other ingredients, set the timer to 60 minutes at 110°C and cover with the lid.
  • Bring 2 litres of salted water to the boil (14 minutes at 250°C). Then add your pasta, following the package cooking times. Don't let it cook any longer or it will become too soft -- you want it to have a bit of a bite (al dente).
  • Lastly, add half the Bolognese sauce to the cooked pasta and mix well. Bellissima!
  • Chef’s tip: Serve up into nice big plates or bowls and spoon the remaining sauce over the top. Drizzle with a little olive oil, sprinkle over some Parmesan, and scatter with some lovely torn basil leaves.
