Simple Spaghetti Bolognese with Fresh Basil and Parmesan

30 mins active prep time, 4 servings

A classic comfort meal. Our spaghetti bolognese recipe features quality Meatwell beef mince and handmade pasta from Maria's in Carlton North - available for delivery every day except Sunday. While you can certainly prepare this meal in 30 minutes, it will benefit from a longer simmer time, so if you have the time, let it cook for 45 minutes or so, gradually adding water so it doesn't dry out.
