Easy bolognese for kids

We all know kids are fussy eaters. Mine could live on spaghetti bolognese though. I've made it a few times where they have turned up their little noses, but now I think I've got it.

Fry off onions, carrots and garlic for about 10 minutes. Then add in a tin of chopped tomatoes, a splash of vinegar and a teaspoon of sugar. Simmer this for about 10 minutes until you can no longer get the whiff of the vinegar!
Before the blitz
  Then pour it into a blender or whatever, and blitz it. It comes out a nice orange colour!

Then back to the wok, fry off the mince until completely browned. Then add in the pureed sauce, add about 100 ml of beef stock and let it all simmer for a good 20 minutes or longer.

Bolognese with no bits

 Serve with spaghetti or pasta, depending on the requirements of the children!
