Quick bolognese

I like to cook from scratch and take pride in it, but sometimes there just isn’t enough time. When I get hungry I get really grumpy, so it’s best to get food on the table quickly. In situations like this, this is how I do it. Even though it is cheating, it tastes much nicer than a tomato sauce from a jar.

Quick (but tasty) bolognese, 4 portions

500 grams minced beef

1/2 packet smoked streaky bacon

1 can sliced mushrooms (or fresh button mushrooms)

1 can plum tomatoes (400 g)

3 tbsp creme fraiche

beef stock

1-2 tbsp Reggae Reggae sauce

a splash of Tabasco

1 tbsp chili sauce (or ketchup)

1 tbsp italian herb seasoning

1 clove of garlic, pressed

salt and pepper

Start by frying the mushrooms golden in butter, then pour over to a bowl. In the same skillet fry the bacon crispy, remove to the same bowl as the mushrooms. Fry the mince in the same pan, when done add the mushrooms and bacon, pour in the tomatoes and creme fraiche and season to taste with garlic, stock, salt and pepper and spices. Let it all cook for a few minutes. Serve with spaghetti and grated parmesan. Yum!
