Fast Pasta Bolognese

Bolognese is an Italian tomato and minced meat sauce.
It's very easy, but in the original way you have to let it cook for quite a while.
So this'll be a fast version.
It's easy and really good.

- pasta
- tomato sauce
- minced meat
- chopped vegetables
- herbs, salt and pepper

Boil water with salt for the pasta. Add the pasta and stir ones in a while to prevent sticking.
Fry the minced meat with a little bit of olive oil. Keep stirring and make sure it doesn't burn.
Whe it's brown, you add the vegetables. You can either use a bag of pre-done veggies or whatever fresh ones you like. Just make sure they are chopped up finely.
I usually make sure there's onion, leek and peppers in it. Courghette also goes very well with this sauce. Fry the veggies with the meat for about five minutes.
Add the tomato sauce and turn the heat down a little.
Let it cook for another five minutes, then season with mediteranian herbs, salt and pepper.
When the pasta is done, pour out the water and either add the sauce to it or serve seperately.
