  1. Use a large deep sauté or large frying pan over medium heat. Add the oil and onion then cook for 6-8 minutes or until the onion starts to soften and change color. Add the garlic and cook for a few more seconds until it becomes fragrant.
  2. Turn the heat to medium high add the mince and cook for 6-7 minutes, until it starts to brown (the color adds flavour), breaking up any lumps with a wooden spoon. Add the tomato paste and cook for a few seconds stirring all the time, followed by the water or wine, tomatoes, stock, bay leaf, herbs and finally the sugar, stir to combine. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat to low and simmer uncovered stirring occasionally for at least 1 hour or until thick and glossy. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Cook the pasta following the manufactures instructions for al dente. Drain and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Serve the pasta in one big bowl for sharing, topped with the Bolognese sauce, parsley and shaved parmesan. Serve with crusty bread and a mixed salad.
