One Pot Pasta Bolognese

Posted on June 06 2023


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves , minced
  • 1 onion , finely chopped
  • 500g lean beef mince
  • 700g  tomato passata 
  • 3 cups beef broth (or stock cubes + water)
  • 2 tsp  mixed herbs
  • 1/4 - 1/2 tsp chilli flakes (red pepper flakes) , adjust to taste
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 3/4 tsp each salt and pepper
  • 350g / 12 oz spaghetti , uncooked 


  • Parmesan



  • Saute onion & garlic: Heat oil in a large pot over high heat. Cook garlic and onion for 2 minutes until translucent.
  • Cook beef: Add beef and cook, breaking it up as you go.
  • Add tomato: Once beef has all changed from red to brown, add tomato passata.
  • Rinse out bottle: Pour some beef stock into the empty bottle, shake, then pour into the pot.
  • Add everything else: Add remaining beef stock and all remaining ingredients except spaghetti. Give it a good stir, then let it come up to the boil.
  • Add spaghetti: Add pasta, fanning it out around the pot. Leave for 30 seconds to start softening, then start pushing it in under the liquid.
  • Cook pasta: Once fully submerged, cook for 12 minutes, stirring every minute or so, and more towards the end. At about the 8 minute mark, lower the heat to medium otherwise the base might catch (but ensure it is still bubbling gently - you don't want pasta just bloating in warm water).
  • Remove from stove, toss well: Take it off the stove once the pasta is JUST cooked, the tiniest bit firmer than you want, and when still saucy. Toss it for about 30 seconds or so - the sauce will reduce further, the pasta will finish cooking.
  • Serve immediately, garnished with parmesan.
