Classic spaghetti bolognese

IT'S an oldie but a goldie - classic spaghetti bolognese to tickle your taste buds.

Ingredients

(serves 4)

  • 6 short-cut bacon rashers, excess fat trimmed
  • 375g dried spaghetti
  • 2 tsp olive oil

  • 1/3 cup loosely packed shredded fresh basil leaves

  2. Cook spaghetti following packet directions, until al dente. Drain well.
  3. Meanwhile, heat oil in the frying pan over high heat. Add mince and cook, uncovered, stirring with a wooden spoon, for 3-4 mins or until the mince changes colour. Pour in pasta sauce and simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 5 mins. Remove from heat.
  4. Stir in the basil and half the bacon. Divide pasta among bowls and spoon over sauce. Top with remaining bacon and cheese.
