Lovely Box from Degustabox on this Easter Break.

Inside this March Box:



My Bolognese Mince meat:

This is a very basic recipe that goes in a second here at home.

I use this recipe for any Italian dish that has mince meat: lasagna, cannelloni, Spag Bol, etc.



  • 500gr of mince meat (or quorn mince for a vegan dish)
  • Cirio Tomato Pure
  • salt and white pepper
  • garlic and onion
  • 2 Tbsp of Olive oil
  • Oregano leaves
  • Bay leaves
  • 2 large tomatoes diced
  • 1 Oxo/Maggi cube (I prefer chicken)


To prepare:

  • Add the olive oil in a sauce pan
  • wash your bay leaves and add in the pan, along with the diced tomatoes and the oregano (this will release the aromas from the leaves)
  • Add the mince meat – mix and separate the meat while mixing.
  • add garlic and onion and salt and pepper, plus with Maggi or oxo cube
  • When the meat is brown, and cooked, add the Cirio Pure and leave it for at least 20 minutes in a medium fire.

If you’re doing Vegan (as I sometimes do):

Substitute the stock for a vegan stock and use either quorn mince or any mince meat substitute like dehydrated Soya or Seitan.
