1. Sauté the Base:
Heat up your favorite pan and add the 400g of beef mince. While the beef starts to brown, finely chop one onion and one bell pepper, and toss them in.
2. Season to Perfection:
Now, it's time to add the flavor! Stir in 1 tablespoon of garlic, 1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning, 1 tablespoon of paprika, and 1 tablespoon of salt and mix thoroughly.
3. Simmer the Sauce:
Once the beef is cooked through and the spices are well blended, pour in 400g of chopped tomatoes, a splash of beef stock, and 500g of passata. Reduce the heat and let the sauce simmer. This slow cooking process will thicken the sauce and concentrate the flavors, making every spoonful rich and satisfying.
4. Prepare the Pasta:
While the sauce is bubbling away, bring a pot of water to a boil and add the 200g of spaghetti (100g per serving). Cook according to the package instructions until al dente, then drain.
5. Combine and Serve:
Your sauce should now be perfectly thickened. Serve it generously over the cooked spaghetti. For an extra touch of indulgence, top your meal with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese.
