    Well, it's probably not technically a bolognaise sauce, but here is my recipe (approx anyway, it always varies slightly!)

    2 tablespoons tomato paste
    2 cloves garlic
    tin crushed tomatoes/or chopped up overripe tomatoes
    1-2 cups stock
    fresh oregano
    fresh thyme
    fresh basil
    handful very finely chopped mushrooms
    sometimes dash red wine


    then sometimes I will add finely grated zuchinni and carrot.

    Dont' forget the parmesan cheese as you serve it!

    to make a mexican twist, leave out the basil and thyme and add generous amount of cumin and some lentils. then serve with all the mexican trimmings like sour cream, chilli etc

    I hope you like it

    I don't know if you already have one, but I planted a herb garden a while back and it is awesome! And saves a lot of money if you have a thing for fresh herbs like I do lol.

    Oh yeah I forgot the meat!

    I use either beef or pork mince. I have a friend that uses chicken.

    Even with my store bought sauces i would buy fresh herbs to put in. thats why i want to just try a completely fresh home made approach.
    Ive wanted to start a herb and veg path but our realestate said nope.
    Dh is looking at doing a freestanding herb garden for me this weekend it becomes reality

    A freestanding herb garden sounds really cool!

    My sister and her DH have herbs growing in pots, hanging from their fence (they rent too and aren't allowed to plant). It's hard to explain but it looks really good.
