I am with you Sleepyhead, I love spag bol and it is a tasty, filling and wholesome meal.
If I have the time and some nice fresh toms' from a local supplier I like to reduce the tomatoes down to make an intense tommy suace.
Not tried rhubarb in the recipe, but have used grated carrot.

Apparently spaghetti is the wrong type of pasta for bolognese sauce, it's too thin. Italians use thicker chunkier pasta, spaghetti is for smooth creamy sauces.


Indeed, I often use bucatini for my spag bol, which I get from a wonderful shop near town, called Italian and Continental Store. I don't see bucatini often elsewhere.

I like doing sauces for pasta.
Prawn surprise, chicken surprise, sausage surprise or mushroom if I'm feeling in a veggie mood.
Thing is I have no idea what's in the veg trays or the fridge when I am about to start so it's as much a surprise to me as anyone else.

I'm gonna make a mixed game stew tomorrow. Got a frozen rabbit and a pigeon, and defrosting some pheasant from before Christmas. It's gonna be YUM

Sounds like our roadkill pie. There are all kinds of expensive animals slaughtered on the roads near us as it's a serious shooting area.
Once there were so many dead pheasants all over the road it was like a Monty python sketch.

Pheasant aren't expensive, Soxy ... I bought three brace in the feather for a tenner on the market before Christmas. Took 'em home, plucked and butchered them, and froze most of it. That's the last of it going in this stew ...

One pot celery, carrot, potato and turkey stew.
Salmon marinated in lemon, olive oil and black pepper corns
Spiced rice with pine nuts
Fine bulgur wheat salad with olive oil
Orange sweet cheese sponge cake

My husband's favourite is pasta with helloumi cheese and fried green hot peppers
I like to make my own pesto sauce for pasta with basil, garlic and olive oil.

That's cheap. They are a lot more around here.
Not as cheap as free off the roadside though.

This is true.

I was driving back from Inverness on the A9 once, and the car in front of me hit a pheasant which, very fortunately, came down in a lay-by. I was straight into that lay-by to pick it up. It can't have been on the tarmac for more than 15 seconds ...
