- In a big saucepan, add the olive oil (I like to cover the bottom of the pan) and when hot enough, add the onion and garlic and cook until translucent.
- Add the salt, pepper and oregano.
- Add the butter and mushrooms and cook off.
- Add the mince and cook off (until it is no longer raw).
- Add the tinned tomatoes and the tomato paste. I like to fill one tin with water and transfer the water from tin to tin, cleaning the sides to get all of the tomato sauce remaining in the tin, out. I then pour the water into the pan and add another tin full of water (or you could use a cup of bone broth).
- Add the final touch, the red wine and stir.
- Let the sauce simmer (on a low heat) for approximately 1-2 hours, depending on how much you want to reduce the liquid down. I prefer to make it really thick, almost like gravy.
- Eat. From a spoon, on a piece of buttered flaxbread, with eggs or to get as close to the traditional Italian pasta option (fettucine is the truest combination but spaghetti works too), zucchini noodles.
