Tim’s Italian Job – Spaghetti Bolognese

(1 customer review)

£18.00

Big Tim’s Italian Job began as a yummy tomato sauce with chunks of tofu, and developed over time into this beautiful spaghetti bolognese with tofu nowhere to be seen! In recent times, during December when Julia was not cooking due to grief over losing Esme, Tim cooked this most nights for Julia, simply placing it in front of her saying ‘eat’. This dish has very special memories. Both good and bad times, it gets us through.

This is now a big, rich, red-wine infused dish, big on flavour and big on satisfaction. Big Tim’s stroke of genius was using finely chopped capers as a base in the sauce…

There are the usual shenanigans that make up a good tomato sauce, then there are olives and capers, and the mincey part is dried soya mince (oh yes it is!) that we’ve marinated in stock, herbs and spices. So the dried mince becomes plumped up with all manner of good flavour.

Despite knowing that Italians mix their sauces through their pasta for serving, we’re not doing that. Spaghetti then sauce then fresh basil… You can mix it up however you like.

Servings: 2

Allergens: soya, gluten

  1. Debbie & Rik

    This dish is absolutely delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It is now firmly listed in our top 3 Heathen Vegan main course choices.
    (Although they are all delicious!)
    The portion size is excellent for 2 people and the sauce to pasta ratio perfect.
    It’s one of the best Spaghetti Bolognese dishes that we’ve ever tasted and we thoroughly recommend you try it.
    As with all Heathen Vegan food, attention to detail is outstanding. It’s really nice to eat food that has been prepared with such thought and TLC. It brings extra enjoyment to the table.
    Thank you Julia & Tim
