Find super-meaty pasta sauce recipes alongside some of our family favourite bolognese, ragu, lasagne, chilli, mince and meatball recipes.
This is a variation of the ever-popular spaghetti bolognese and is sure to become just as well-loved. The little meatballs have aubergine added for a modern twist, and the sauce contains all the essential flavours of a classic Italian dish. Both can be made ahead, then simply reheated when you are ready to cook the pasta.
This is a rustic Spanish, spicy, mince based baked penne pasta dish which is perfect for a no-frills family supper. It has come about through trial and error in an attempt to replicate a dish that I ate in a Spanish farmhouse some 15 years ago. In our family it is simply called THE Pasta Dish. The sauce makes 5 portions and so it becomes economical and quick after you've cooked the batch of sauce.
Hearty, healthy and everyone's favourite Italian dish – don't you want pasta and meatballs for supper tonight? Unlike traditional recipes, these meatballs are low in fat, yet they're full of the terrific taste you crave.
A simple, chilli con carne that will feed the family.
After many attempts to create the best meatballs, I think I've got them as good as I can get them. Great on a budget and just as a warning, you will not be able to stop eating them. I serve with wholewheat or egg spaghetti, as the normal and quick cook ones don't taste of much to me and, of course, garlic bread.
