Spicy Spaghetti Bolognese

Spicy Spaghetti Bolognese

For a dish that is made as often as spicy spaghetti bolognese, it seemed like a great idea to try adding our Gran Luchito Chipotle Paste. The result was fantastic. Chipotle spiced spaghetti bolognese is now a firm family favourite and we can’t really imagine spag bol any other way!

Serve the chipotle spicy spaghetti bolognese with either this goats cheese and tomato salad.

How to make it

  1. Heat a little olive oil in a large pan over a low heat. Add the bacon and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the onion and celery and leave to cook gently for 10 minutes.
  2. Next add the carrot, garlic and Gran Luchito Chipotle Chilli Paste. Stir well and cook for another 10 minutes.
  3. Add the beef mince and stir into the mix. Turn the heat up a little for about 15 minutes to brown the beef.
  4. Add the milk and bring to a simmer, then cook for 5 minutes until it is rich and thick.
  5. Add the canned and fresh tomatoes, tomato purée, wine, bay leaf, sugar, nutmeg and a good pinch of salt and pepper. Stir, put a lid over three-quarters of the pan, reduce the heat to low and cook for an hour, or 2–3 hours if you have time, stirring occasionally. You’re looking to achieve a nice thick consistency with a rich flavour (keep tasting as it cooks and adjust seasoning to taste).
  6. Ten minutes before serving, cook the pasta in boiling salted water, saving a few tablespoons of the cooking water. Add the retained pasta water to the ragu, stir and mix with the drained pasta.
  7. Simmer to reach your preferred consistency. Stir in most of the parsley and basil, then finish with the grated Parmesan, a drizzle of olive oil and some more parsley.

Recipe we go back to all the time… Spaghetti Bolognese on steroids… So rich and tasty. Worth cooking down the bacon and vegetables to bring all that flavour with the chipotle paste. We make linguine with it to soak up that delicious sauce! Thank you Gran Luchito *****
