  1. Step 1

    Heat 3 tbsp olive oil in a large, wide pan with a lid.
  2. Step 2

    Add the pancetta and cook until golden. Add the mince and cook until browned, breaking it up in the pan with a spatula or wooden spoon.
  3. Step 3

    Add the sausage in pieces and keep cooking until it is opaque – try to break up the sausage into smaller pieces as it cooks so it’s a similar size to the mince.
  4. Step 4

    Add the onions, garlic, celery and carrots and give everything a good stir. Cover and cook on a low heat until the veg softens, stirring now and then. This will take about 10 minutes.
  5. Step 5

    Add the tomatoes, purée and stock, and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook for 1 hour. Add the basil and cook for another 5 minutes.
  6. Step 6

    Cook the spaghetti, then drain and toss with the sauce. Spoon into warm bowls and serve with parmesan, if you like.
