  • canned diced tomatoes800g of canned diced tomatoes

  • salt and pepperSalt and pepper to taste
  • grated Parmesan cheeseGrated Parmesan cheese for serving


  1. First, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the spaghetti and cook according to the package instructions until it is al dente. This means it should be firm when bitten.
  2. In the meantime, heat a large pan over medium heat. Add a splash of olive oil, then add the finely chopped onion and minced garlic. Sauté these until the onion becomes translucent and the garlic is fragrant.
  3. Next, add the ground beef to the pan with the onions and garlic. Break it up with a spoon and cook until it is fully browned and no pink remains.
  4. Now, pour in the canned diced tomatoes and the Tasty Glass red wine. The wine will add a rich depth of flavor to the sauce.
  5. Season the sauce with salt and pepper to taste. Allow it to simmer over low heat until it thickens, about 15-20 minutes.
  6. Once the spaghetti is done, drain it well. Then, toss it directly into the pan with the Bolognese sauce, ensuring every strand is coated.
  7. Finally, serve the spaghetti Bolognese hot, with a generous sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese on top. Enjoy!
