“Yeah, I know another recipe for "spag-bol" yawn ! ............ Try this one, it's very simple but the long slow cooking really gives the dish a wonderful succulence and flavour. It's also great with kids. This makes heroic amounts of sauce, which can be frozen and used in cannelloni, lasagna, cottage pie, moussaka etc.”
