This recipe what I would call one of my mothership recipes, once you’ve mastered this (and trust me it won’t take long) you can make a number of different dishes. This recipe will be suitable for:

  • · Lasagne,
  • · Chilli Con Carne
  • · Canelloni
  • · Bolognese

The recipe I use is as easy as it comes, I put this together in half an hour. Of course, the longer you take the more flavour you get in your dish so don’t rush things…. I was just hungry!

Making this also marks a first for me – I’d never knowingly tried celery before I made this for the blog. I don’t normally use it I just use onions and carrots but I wanted to do things properly and the Italians use a Soffritto as the base to most of their dishes which is finely diced Celery, Carrots and Onions.

You can serve this with Rice, Pasta, Mashed Potatoes – or just on it’s own… My friend Chris and I (photographer extraordinaire both felt it was good enough to eat on its own, maybe with a bit of crusty bread to mop up the juice (now we’re talking!)
