This is my Dads original recipe that I have tweaked for speed and taste over the years, while maintaining the integrity of the original dish. This spag bol is quick to prepare and gets better the longer it simmers.

Preparation time :15-20 mins
Cooking time: 30-45 mins

You will need...

500g beef mince, preferably a little fatty (10%)
1 large red onion
Fresh thyme
Fresh Oregano
2 tins of tinned tomato (plum, chopped)
2-3 cloves garlic
1 packet of spaghetti
Tomato Paste
Worcestershire sauce
Dash of red wine if available
Olive oil - extra virgin
Butter - a couple of knobs of...

Garlic bread to serve
Nice Shiraz to serve

Step 1: Preparation

Chop the red onion and garlic finely with a nice sharp knife. I like to smash the garlic with the flat of the knife first to help pulp it and release its lovely oils.
Get all the ingredients out for quick access and to ensure you have all you need.
Pick the oregano and thyme and rip it up a little. Remove the woody stalks from the thyme.

<p>lol, how many types of spaghetti did u use!?!? :)</p>
&nbsp;This does look tasty !&nbsp; Your recipe is close to mine except I also use green peppers. To change/spice it up some lately, I've been adding a jar of hot salsa or picante sauce. I have to admit that not everyone in the family appreciates it as much as I do...
I understand that, I love the extra heat but my 2.5 year old and wife don't :( <br /> Luckily I&nbsp;have a chilli company nearby who make a 'turbo supercharge' 10++/10 chilli relish which goes really well with this! - http://thechillifactory.com.au/product_info.php?products_id=28&amp;osCsid=gqpqc7gt7al5f6f6k3mpdmcov2<br /> <br /> I highly recommend the sauce if you're looking for a little 'zing'! Thanks for commenting!<br />
Looks very good. I tend to stick a hand-blender in a tin of un-chopped tomatoes<br /> <br /> L<br />
AHHHHHH!!!!!!! The dreaded SPAGBOL<br />
a family favorite everywhere.... there's not any other instructables for a spag bol is there????&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; ;)<br />
