Pasta Bolognese

Serves 4

About 2 cups of minced meat
2 cups of chopped tomatoes (fresh or canned)
1 carrot diced (small)
1 onion chopped
5 cloves of garlic
1/2 cup of olive oil
1 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon of Italian spices
1 tablespoon fresh chopped basil (or dry)
1/2 teaspoon of chili pepper flakes or cayenne (optional)
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 tablespoon of fresh chopped parsley
1 cup of water
Salt & Pepper to taste
Pasta (of your choice) cooked and drained

In a pan, add olive oil, onions, carrot, Italian spices, pepper flakes, salt & pepper and cook for a minute then add the meat, allspice and cook for another minute then add the garlic and cook a bit until the juices are absorbed then add the tomatoes and basil, cover and cook on medium until the tomatoes are cooked, then add the tomato paste and water and let it simmer for 15 minutes, then add the parsley and mix and serve over the pasta of your choice.

*Before serving the sauce over the pasta: In a non-stick pan add the pasta add some olive oil or butter and some fresh chopped basil or parsley. It's a great way to heat the pasta and add more flavor to it. Some garlic powder also is good. Now I did not mention Parmesan cheese because it's always on the table ;)
