Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a sauté pan like the Tower 28cm Saute Pan on a medium heat. Add the onion and the minced beef and fry for around five minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mince has browned and the onions are soft.

Add the sliced mushrooms and finely chopped carrot, cook for 1 minute, then add tinned tomatoes, vegetable stock, tomato purée, Worcestershire sauce and freshly ground black pepper. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and allow to simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the sauce has thickened.

Fill a large saucepan with salted boiling water, then add the wholemeal spaghetti and cook according to packet instructions. When cooked, drain and serve in dishes.

Serve the Bolognese sauce on top and sprinkle generously with parsley.
