Tagliatelle alla Bolognese

Spaghetti Bolognese is a dish created bearing in mind the ethnic Italian origin but adapted to suit British taste. This dish doesn't exist in Italy - the original dish originates in Emilia Romagna and it's called tagliatelle alla Bolognese. The main difference is that flat ribboned pastas are used instead of spaghetti and the ragù sauce doesn't contain herbs at all.

Tagliatelle alla Bolognese

25g butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium-sized onion, chopped
500g minced beef
1kg polpa di pomodoro (tomato pulp)
1 teaspoon concentrated tomato purée
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Heat the oil and butter in a pan and fry the chopped onion. Then add the meat and fry until golden brown. Stir in tomato pulp and tomato purée. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover with a lid and leave to simmer for about 2 hours stirring from time to time.

Serve with freshly cooked tagliatelle and sprinkle with freshly grated parmesan, if desired, but purists like this dish without.
