Jamie Oliver's Oven Baked Spaghetti Bolognese

Another wonderful recipe from Jamie Oliver - Oven baked Spaghetti Bolognese with fresh herbs. Very easy and super tasty.


1 large onion
3 cloves garlic - chopped about 0.5 cm in size
Big bag of fresh rosemary
1 tablespoon of organo
Pack of smoked streaky bacon 250g
1kg steak mince
2 tins of tomatoes
Tube of 200g tomato puree
1 glass of red wine
Half a lump of grated strong cheddar to garnish


Fry the streaky bacon and rosemary in a hob-top casserole dish. Once the bacon has browned slightly, add the garlic and onion until they have softened a little. Then add the mince, tomatoes, puree, red wine, a tablespoon of oregano and put in oven for hour and half with lid on on gas mark 5.

It's that simple! oh except for the fact that you have to cook spaghetti 15 minutes before the bolognese is cooked. I also think that it may be quite healthy, but try not to let that put you off - it really is tasty.

Serves 5-6

P.S. I know I posted this picture yesterday, but it seemed daft not to put it next to the recipe itself. Shame that the picture doesn't do it justice at all. In real life it is deep red with green flashes of fresh rosemary.

P.P.S. This is a great dish to make you look like an effortless hostess with the mostess.


  1. I'm guessing you need some spaghetti too?

  2. Oh yeh. I forgot it at the supermarket and also in the recipe. Add spaghetti, but don't cut it in half like Josephine did because you can't twizzle it around your fork properly.

  3. This dish is delicious - thank you for posting it.

  4. Glad you like it! so simple to make too.....

  5. Great article Thank

    you so much!

  6. do you brown the beef first, or just put in the oven uncooked?

  7. Hi, no you don't brown the beef first. Baking it makes the mince stay nice and tender.

  8. Great recipe - thanks! My 16 year old son now won't eat bolognese made any other way!
