About this recipe

This easy, homemade spaghetti with beef tomato sauce takes just a few minutes to prepare. We’ve been making this recipe forever, it’s a regular staple in our home. This recipe is super special because I’m using my homemade passata sauce. Simmer on the stove for a deep rich flavour and everyone will love it.



  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion roughly chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves crushed
  • 1 -2 long red chilli finely chopped
  • 500 grams beef mince
  • 2 x 500 ml passata sauce
  • 4-5 basil leaves
  • 3-4 anchovy fillets finely chopped (optional)
  • cracked black pepper
  • salt to season
  • 500 grams of dried spaghetti

Notes from Rouba

  • Remember to taste the sauce before adding the salt as the anchovies are salty.


Step 1.

Over medium heat, fry chopped onion, garlic, and chilli with olive oil. Cook until they soften, about 7 minutes. Add beef mince and continue to fry breaking up the mince until browned. Then add passata sauce, anchovies and basil leaves. Reduce the heat and simmer stirring occasionally for 30-40 minutes or until the sauce thickens and the water is absorbed. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 2.

While the sauce is simmering, bring a pot of water to a boil and add 2 tablespoons of salt. Cook the spaghetti according to the packet instructions. Drain.

Step 3.

Once the beef sauce is ready, add the pasta. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with grated parmesan.
