Heat a medium sized pot on the stove. Add the bacon and rosemary and a little olive oil. Fry until lightly golden. Add the onion and garlic and fry for a few more minutes, till the onion softens, add the beef mince. Fry together for another few minutes, till fragrant but does not start to colour too much.
Add the wine, cook for 3-5 minutes or so and add the oregano, tomatoes, tomato paste and sun dried tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper, cover the pot with a lid and simmer on a very low heat for approx. 60- 90 minutes.
20 minutes before the end of the cooking time, prepare the pasta according to packaging instructions.
Serve bolognaise with fresh basil leaves and grated cheese.
Serve sauce without the pasta or replace with baby marrow pasta for those on a low Carb diet.

Left over sauce can be used in a number of dishes, eg, pasta bake with leftover mince, shephards pie, wraps, over pizza....
