Kyri's Pasta Bolognese

This is another one of my wife's contributions to the blog. She was again experimenting the other day with pasta ( as you can see from the previous entry, she has a thing for pasta) and what started to be the traditional Italian pasta Bolognese, finally ended up as her her own version of Bolognese with fetta cheese and fresh rocket. Enjoy! It tastes amazingly good!

  • 500g of minced meat
  • 3 tomatoes
  • 250 ml of concentrated tomato juice
  • 2 green peppers
  • 4 large onions
  • 4 large mushrooms
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 100g of fetta cheese mashed
  • bay leaves
  • rocket leaves
  • parsley (preferably fresh, but dry one will do)
  • basil
  • half glass of red wine
  • salt, pepper


Chop onions and garlic and fry them in a large pan. When they become golden in color, add the minced meat. Stir well, let it cook for about 5-7 minutes, and then add fresh tomatoes and concentrated tomato juice. Mix well, let it simmer on medium fire for another 3-5 minutes and add the rest of the ingredients. Mix well and let it simmer for another 10 minutes. In the meantime, bring water to boil, add any pasta of your preference, and let it cook for 10 minutes. Serve with red wine.
