  1. For the pasta, add pasta to saucepan of boiling water and simmer until tender.
  2. For the bolognese sauce, brown the ground beef, diced onion and chopped mushrooms in another saucepan, stirring until cooked (Don't add any oil or fat as the beef will cook in its own juices).
  3. Add can of chopped tomatoes to the beef and then simmer gently to make the bolognese sauce.
  4. Stir in a sprinkling of garlic powder and mixed herbs.
  5. Add water to the sauce, then stir in 6 heaped teaspoons of beef gravy granules to thicken sauce.
  6. To serve, Drain the pasta when tender and return to saucepan. Pour bolognese sauce over the pasta, then stir until mixed in.
  7. Serve immediately, topped with a sprinkling of cheddar cheese if desired.
  8. Note: for extra flavor, you could also add some worcestershire sauce to the bolognese sauce.
