Heat the olive oil in a deep saucepan. Add the onion and garlic and sauté for a few minutes.

Add the mince and brown. Add the mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes. Add the wine and allow to simmer for a further 3 minutes.

Add the tin of tomatoes, tomato paste, beef stock and herbs. Season with salt and pepper, then allow to simmer for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has thickened.

While the sauce is simmering cook the spaghetti in a pot of boiling water until al dente.

Drain the spaghetti and dish onto warm plates. Spoon the sauce over the spaghetti, top with grated parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
