Spaghetti Bolognese is a weekly staple in our house, so this week I thought I would try changing it up a bit, it worked really well and went down a treat.
Spaghetti Bolognese with a twist
I started by frying the onion, mushrooms, pancetta and chorizo, until the mushrooms started to brown and the onions start to go translucent. Next I added the mince and browned.
Once the beef was browned I stirred in the stock cubes and the balsamic vinegar. At this point I added the 2 tins of tomatoes - I blended mine up using a hand blender because my kids (and OH) don't like chunks of tomato!
And then I just left it on a low heat to simmer for around 20-30mins until the sauce had been reduced by about half. Taste, season if necessary and serve.
I found adding chorizo and pancetta to my regular spaghetti bolognase recipe really was a simple yet yummy change a family favourite. Just as a tip i normally cook this at lunch time and then cover and let stand till the pasta is cooked and then i just give it a quick warm though and serve.
Let me know what you think of this twist and share any tips, hints and twists you may have in the comments below. As always dont forget to share if you try out any of my recipes @sparkly_mummy on twitter and instagram.
