Dolmio® Original Sauce for Bolognese


  1. 1
    Finely chop the celery and carrots (use a food processor if you can, to save time). Take a large frying pan, add 2 tbsp of the oil and fry the vegetables over a medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. 2
    Add the beef and fry for a further 5 minutes until browned. Stir through the Dolmio Original Bolognese Sauce and simmer over a low heat for a further 20 minutes.
  3. 3
    Whilst the Bolognese is simmering, make the courgetti using a spiraliser, or if you don’t have one, make long thin ribbons of courgetti using a vegetable peeler. Alternatiely, you can also buy ready made courgetti for convenience! Fry the courgetti in a pan with 2 tbsp olive oil over a high heat for 2 – 3 minutes.
  4. 4
    Serve the Bolognese over the courgetti, with freshly ground black pepper and grated parmesan if you wish.
