Spaghetti Bolognese with Pancetta and Chorizo

Recipe Ingredients: (enough for 4)
  • 500grs minced meat (beef)
  • 400grs spaghetti
  • 40grs Pancetta (or smoked bacon)
  • 20grs chorizo (diced)
  • 1 onion (finely diced)
  • 3 garlic cloves (finely diced)
  • 1 plum tomato tin (finely diced) best if "Italian"
  • 1 soup spoon of tomato concentrate (diluted in 1/2 glass of water)
  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • enough olive oil
  • bunch of coriander
  • enough salt and black pepper
Put on the stove a frying pan with a little olive oil, once well hot add the onion, the garlic and cook these well until golden, and at this stage add the pancetta and chorizo fry them for a further 3 minutes stirring always, follow it them with the addition of the minced beef, and still stirring it this time occasionally cook until all of the beef is browned, at which stage you now add the tomatoes both plum and concentrate, once it gets to boiling point reduce the flame to minimum and let it cook for about 20-30 minutes.

Eleven minutes before the sauce is ready, place a pan of boiling water with little salt and vegetable oil (like 2 soup spoons), stick the spaghetti inside and this will be ready in 11 minutes should still be a little "al Dente" as it should, as is delicious if it offers a little resistance when you bite it, drain it in a colander pouring boiling water over it to remove the starch still draining it. Serve and eat is delicious, and very simple.
