Basic Bolognese

This is a very basic recipe for bolognese, suitable for serving with pasta, or usage in recipes such as lasagne.

1kg / 2 lb beef mince
2 beef stock cubes
3 onions
6 cloves of garlic
Worcestershire sauce
3 tins chopped tomatoes
Olive Oil

Put a little olive oil in a pan on a high heat. Chop the onions and place them in the pan. Crush the garlic into the pan, add the mince and crumble in the stock cubes. Cook this combination until the mince has browned and the onions are softer. Reduce the heat to medium and add the tomatoes, and add the herbs and Worcestershire sauce to taste. Simmer for about half an hour, stirring occasionally. Serve with spaghetti or some other pasta, and top with cheese.
