How to make it

  • In a large saucepan cook the minced beef till its broken up and starts turning brown
  • Put heat to medium-high, add onion and 1 teaspoon salt and continue frying till meat is properly browned and onions are translucent, don’t burn or brown the onions
  • Now add the wine, stock cube, green pepper and chili pepper - increase heat a little, mix and leave it to boil in the wine for 3 minutes
  • Fill a large pot with water according to instructions on pasta package and bring it to boil while you continue…
  • Add the tomato puree and pulp, mix well adding the thyme, rosemary, origanum and pepper
  • Can add half a tin of water too - I use it to wash all the pulp/puree out of the tin/bottle adding it to the sauce
  • Bring to boil then put heat low and cover
  • Leave the sauce to cook while you prepare the pasta according to instructions
  • Once pasta is drained, scoop about 3-4 ladles of sauce into it and mix before serving on plates, this stops it from sticking together
  • Scoop some additional sauce over the pasta once in plates
  • Enjoy immediately while hot

    ooh yes, pepper is good! The secret with tomato puree is to leave it to cook a long time, some leave it up to 3 hours! so this sauce will just get better the longer it cooks on low heat. That's why unlike the other pasta sauces I've posted, this one has you preparing the pasta's water later on instead of first ;) Giving more time to cook the sauce.

    Nemo, thank you for sharing. This sounds great. I like the amount and the combination of spices. Especially, I like the 1 teaspoon pepper. :)
