Don’t tell anyone but this is definitely not a bolognese. It is, however, a really delicious meaty tomato pasta sauce which I probably make twice every week. It’s perfect Monday food (summer or winter) but also perfect hangover food – should you need a little TLC.
The vegan mince you use is pretty important – obviously the better the mince, the better the dish. I find the most realistic to be Naturli. I use this stuff for my burgers and lasagne too. It’s got a perfect texture and a subtle meaty umami flavour. If you can’t get hold of it, most large supermarkets have a similar product. Get the stuff from the refrigerated meat alternatives section, not the frozen stuff.
Makes two decent bowls of pasta.
