Spaghetti Bolognese Recipe

Traditionally, the bolognese sauce is served with tagliatelle (long flat pasta noodles), but you can use any type of pasta you like, such as paghetti.

Serves: 2

Prep Time: 5

Cook Time: 15


  • 300g bolognese sauce (see recipe here)
  • 2 servings of spaghetti or other pasta (about 160g)
  • water
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • shredded parsmesan cheese and chopped parsley optional


  1. Bring a pot of water with 1 tbsp sea salt to a boil.  Cook pasta according until al dente. Drain and set aside the pasta, reserving some of the pasta water.
  2. Warm bolognese sauce in a saucepan. Set aside 1-2 ladles of sauce in a bowl.
  3. Add cooked pasta to the meat sauce in saucepan. Add pasta water, 1 tablespoon at a time, to bind the pasta together.
  4. Season with freshly cracked black pepper. Plate the pasta to serving dishes and top with the remaining meat sauce. Top with parmesan cheese and parsley, if desired.

Noob Cook Tip:

The meat sauce can be prepared in advanced - freeze the sauce in individual serving bags and thaw them when needed (either stove top or microwave).
