Allow me to start.
BASIC SPAGHETTI BOLOGNESE
1 kilo ground beef, tender chuck or brisket
2 whole large native garlic heads, bashed then minced
2 whole large purple onions, minced
2 large stalks of celery, de-stringed and small chopped
2 large styro trays button mushrooms, small chopped
1 large carrot, small chopped
6 large or 8 medium ripe red tomatoes, peeled and chopped
1 small tin tomato paste
1 cup medium bodied or full bodied red table wine
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon dried oregano flakes
1 tablespoon dried thyme flakes
1 tablespoon dried basil flakes
1 tablespoon black pepper corns, rough hand ground
1 tablespoon course salt
1 cup tap water
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 kilo spaghetti noodles
Heat a deep heavy-gauge stew pot over medium to medium-high heat. Heat the oil until just before it gets to the smoke point. Put in the meat and brown fully. Add in the garlic, onions, celery, tomatoes, mushrooms and carrots. Saute every thing very well until all the vegetables are well-cooked. Add in the wine, water, tomato sauce, salt and pepper, Worcestershire sauce. Mix everything very well. Add in basil, oregano and thyme and mix well. Add in wine and water and bring everything to a good simmer.
Lower the heat to medium-low and simmer for an hour making sure there is still some bubbling to the simmer. Stir around every 15 minutes.
In the last 15 minutes of simmering the sauce cook the spaghetti noodles in a separate pot about a minute less than package directions instruct. Make sure the water the noodles cook in is well-seasoned, about a tablespoon and a half of salt for every 500 grams of pasta.
When spaghetti noodles are done take all of them out of their pot and put them directly into the sauce pot. Add in 3-4 tablespoons of the pasta water the noodles boiled in. Mix everything together well.
Serve immediately with good crusty bread, may or may not be toasted and/or buttered.
Should serve 4-5 people. If it was just me, this will serve me and maybe two other normal people. ;D
