SLOW TIME: This bolognese cooks for six hours.

This slow-cooked bolognese is both glamorous and clever. The bolognese has well-browned mince in its first step, and the long slow cooking adds melt-in-the-mouth goodness.

½ tsp cracked black pepper

1 carrot, finely diced

1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and brown the mince in batches, sprinkling with salt and pepper as you go. Remove and set aside.

2. Heat the olive oil in the same frying pan and gently saute the onion, carrot, celery, oregano and garlic for 5 minutes.

3. Add the tomatoes, tamari and brown sugar with the mince. Add to the slow cooker and cook on low for 6 hours.

4. Serve with spaghetti, cheese, fresh herbs, and olives if desired.
