Spaghetti Bolognese Classico

Meat Based
Voted amongst the top van life eats of all time we give you a classic and authentic Spaghetti Bolognese recipe that we make in our van all the time! A date night speciality 😉 To be really authentic a mix of both pork and beef is used but for van life storage we tend to use just beef.

  • 110 g Dried Spaghetti Pasta
  • 250 g Beef mince
  • 400 g Chopped tomato
  • 1 tbsp Tomato Puree
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Dried Oregano
  • 1 Fresh Basil
  • 2 Garlic cloves
  • 1 Carrot
  • 1 Celery
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil


  • Finely chop the onion, carrot and celery. (The Zyliss Easy Pull is your best friend right now).
  • Heat the olive oil in a pan over a medium heat.
  • Add the onion, carrot and celery to the pan and cook for about 5 minutes until the veg starts to soften.
  • Finely chop and add the garlic to the pan.
  • Season the mince and add to the pan.
  • Stir the mince until it has browned with no pink bits remaining. Add the tomato puree and stir. Add the tin of chopped tomatoes.
  • Add the sugar and give it all a good stir. Lower the heat slightly, cover with a pan lid (loosely) and leave to cook gently for 30 minutes. Stir regularly. After 30 minutes add the dried Oregano. Meanwhile boil a pan of water and when at boiling point add the Spaghetti.
  • Chop most of the fresh Basil only leaving a few leaves for garnishing. Add the basil to the mince mixture. When the pasta is cooked (soft / al dentè) drain and serve a portion to each plate. Serve a portion of the Bolognese sauce on top. Sprinkle the cheese on top with a garnish of Basil. Buon appetito!
