Left over Meantime and Bolognese for tea

Thought I'd experiment again with the leftover Meantime Winter Time from this afternoon's cupcakes so chucked it into some Bolognese. Since the Day Nurse has now kicked in (did I mention the cold??), I can confirm it was yum.
- Heat pan with some olive oil and fry the pancetta, then adding the onion, sauté until the onion becomes transparent
- Add ground minced beef, garlic, and Worcestershire sauce, then fry until beef is lightly browned, and then add the lager and cooked until reduced by about half
- Then add rest of the ingredients, mash the tomatoes in the pan, and allow sauce/gravy to simmer on low heat for 45mins
- While gravy is simmering, start boiling water and cook the pasta according to instructions.
- When pasta is cooked, add into the ragu sauce and mix well. Serve immediately.
- 1tbsp olive oil
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1tbsp pancetta, cubed
- 1lb minced beef
- 3 cloves of garlic, crushed
- Tin of tomatoes
- few dashes of Worcestershire sauce
