Bolognaise - Make 1 Get 2 - part 1

With my mom's recipe , I simply make 1 bolognaise sauce for two pasta dishes - spaghetti and lasagna. I even simplify it by buying the bolognaise sauce jar (:p) and add some more spices to my liking.

BOLOGNAISE SAUCE (Javanese Style :D)

500 gr Minced beef
2-3 big tomatoes, blend into juice
1 big onion, sliced thinly
2-3 cloves of garlic, crushed
50 grams of grated cheese (Gouda Jong Belegen is better, but Cheddar cheese will do too)
A Splash or two Worcestershire sauce
50 ml fresh milk or cream
1 tablespoon Tomato sauce
Spices: Oregano, Basil, Salt, pepper, sugar
Margarine or oil for cooking

Olive oil and sliced champignons - optional

- Heat the margarine/oil to medium heat and sauté crushed garlic and onion until it's sweet-smelling
- Add minced beef and W.Sauce, mix thoroughly with all spices to your taste.
- Add sliced champignons if you like
- Cook until the minced beef gets juicy then add the tomato juice (and olive oil), mix
- Continue cooking while adding tomato sauce, cheese and milk/cream, mix thoroughly
- Let it boil for a while in low heat. Stir occasionally for 4-5 minutes, and then set aside
