Spaghetti Bolognese Recipe with Oregano | Gordon Ramsay

Gordon Ramsay shares his bolognese sauce recipe, perfect for Spaghetti Bolognese or an oven baked Lasagne.

This is not a slow cooking recipes that will take in excess of an hour but quick and easy, 20 minutes max!

Ramsay likes to grate the onion and the carrot as it makes them cook faster and follows the traditional Italian method of adding a little milk towards the end of cooking.

Instructions for the spaghetti are not included, follow packet instructions… 12 minutes max, pasta is best served al dente, “too the tooth”.

Some say he holds the world record for potatoes peeled in a minute. It is believed he set this record as a 6 year old while living at the ANC camp in Tanzania during the 1970's
