Thyme and beef spaghetti

Fresh egg spaghetti with delicious sauce made of minced, lean beef, fresh thyme, red wine and tomatoes. Inspired by a traditional bolognese recipe. We used tinned tomatoes but if they’re in season, use fresh ones. They taste so much better. This dish is very easy and rather quick to cook. Simmer the sauce for at least  30 minutes to make the beef very soft and fragrant. Taste best with fresh egg spaghetti. Serve decorated with thyme leaves and parmesan shavings. Enjoy.
