Spaghetti Bolognese

In a large pot, on medium heat, fry the following for 5-10 minutes, with 1 tbsp butter (or oil):
~ 2 sticks celery, finely diced
~ 1 carrot, peeled and finely diced
~ 1 brown onion (or red if you like), peeled and finely diced
~ 1 tsp crushed garlic
~ sprinkle of salt and pepper
~ 1 tsp dried herbs (anything like italian mixed herbs, basil, parsley etc)
When the veges are soft, add in:
~ 500g mince
~ 250g lamb mince
~ 2 tbsp tomato paste
Break up the meat with a wooden spoon and when the meat is all browned, add in the following:
~ 1 jar of pasta sauce (if I had the time, I’d love to make it from scratch however the jarred option provides a quicker option!)
~ 1/2 jar of water
After about 5 minutes, when it starts to simmer, add:
~ about 6-8 button mushrooms, sliced
~ 1/2 tsp sugar
~ 1 tsp salt
Reduce the heat to med-low and keep simmering, stirring every now and again, for about an hour or more
Serve with any pasta you like and top with freshly grated parmesan cheese.
