Peel and finely chop the onion. Finely grate the carrots. Thinly slice the celery.
To make the Bolognese sauce, in a saucepan over a high heat, heat half the olive oil and fry the mince in small batches until dark brown. It’s important to do this in batches so the mince doesn’t steam, but instead caramelises. This is the secret to a sauce with rich flavour.
Heat the remaining olive oil and sauté the onion, carrot and celery over a low heat until softened – this should take approx. 10 minutes.
Return all the mince to the pot and add the tinned tomatoes. Season the sauce well with the salt and freshly ground pepper, add the rosemary and simmer for at least 3 hours.
