Preheat an oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a casserole pan over medium heat, add olive oil, and cook 6 strips of thick-sliced bacon along with 2 sprigs of chopped rosemary leaves, 2 finely sliced cloves of garlic and a finely chopped onion. Continue stirring occasionally for about five minutes. Add 1 pound of ground beef, and break up with a spoon. Cook until the meat begins to brown, and then pour in about 1 cup of red wine, and let the beef simmer.
Blend 10 ounces of sun-dried tomatoes in a food processor, and add them to the beef along with 28 ounces of canned plum tomatoes. Stir and cook while slightly breaking up the tomatoes. Cover the pan and cook at 350 degrees F for one hour, removing the lid after 30 minutes. Add water if the sauce appears dry.
Cook 1 pound of spaghetti according to package instructions about 10 minutes before the sauce is ready. Drain the pasta, and reserve about 1 1/2 cups of the pasta water. Mix the spaghetti in the pan with a few scoops of the sauce, a drizzle of olive oil and a splash of cooking water if necessary. Serve the spaghetti on a plate with a large spoonful of bolognese and some Parmesan cheese.Learn more about Cooking
