Just made them and it's super delicious! Added a bit of chopped carrot and used fresh garlic instead of the granules and it worked perfect. Easy with no fuss of wine or beef broth! Thank you for this recipe! - 09 Feb 2016


I added 1 red chilli, was gonna add 2 but glad I didn't it was hot enough for my family, for 4 people I used 350g mince, 1 can chopped tomatoes and half a carton of pasatta I had in the fridge and only about 100g tomato puree and a fresh carton of mushrooms - excellent thanks for the recipe - 07 Jun 2016
