It isn’t just for sandwiches!

· Put the onion and oil in a large pan and fry over a medium heat for 3-4 minutes. Add the garlic and mince and fry until they both brown. Add the mushrooms and herbs, and cook for another couple of minutes.
· Stir in the tomatoes, beef stock, tomato purée, Chilli Jam, Worcestershire sauce and seasoning. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes.
· Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti in a large pan of boiling water, according to packet instructions. Drain well, and add a dash of olive oil (optional), then stir in the meat sauce. Serve in hot bowls and hand round the cheese, for sprinkling on top.
