    Add tomatoe puree (half a tube).

    Traditionally you would add some,italian herbs and omit that much Garlic,it is more french with that amount but depends on personal taste,aslo would use pure beef that has been ground so more of a ragu but tastes lovely all the same.

    Also did you know that the sauce was originally made from Boar

    I use lazy garlic, stops your fingers smelling and a garlic press is murder to get clean. Is it me or does there seem alot ot tomatoes in this recipe, tinned, passata and puree. I tend to use passata or fresh tomatoes. I also like to add bacon, usually pancetta, another traditionally italian twist.

    Defo can't have too much in my eyes although I wouldn't use the passata & puree I would use one or other win tinned toms.
