There's no need to miss out on your favourite dishes if you don't or can't eat gluten. Some argue about what a classic Bolognese is, but we think this one is spot on. The sundried tomatoes add a lovely sweetness and using fresh basil and parsley elevates it. See method

  1. Heat the oil in a large and sauté the onions and garlic, frying until softened. Increase the heat and add the minced beef.
  2. Fry it until it has browned, breaking down any chunks of meat with a wooden spoon. Pour in the wine and boil until it has reduced a little. Reduce the temperature and stir in the mushrooms, tomatoes and sundried tomatoes. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 1 hour stirring from time to time.
  3. At the end of cooking add the basil and parsley. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and cook the gluten-free pasta according to the packet instructions. Drain and divide between 4 warmed bowls. Ladle over the cooked bolognese sauce and finish with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese.
