none of those, the only spices i put in my spag bol is steak seasoning
which contains Spices (Black Pepper (24%), Dried Onion, Yellow Mustard Seed (11%), Ground Coriander Seed (9%), Chilli Pepper, Dried Garlic (2%), Ground Ginger, Cumin), Sea Salt, Dried Red Bell Peppers, Bay Leaves, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Oregano
I wouldn't use mixed herbs and definitely not thyme. I'd use about a level teaspoon of both dried basil and oregano at the beginning and finish with torn fresh basil leaves when serving up.
I would use a teaspoon of basil and one of oregano or Italian seasoning. I've never thought to use thyme for a pasta sauce before.
Definitely not thyme. Oregano and basil. About 2 teaspoon ovveach. Finely chopped carrot, celery and onion. Maybe some chopped pancetta or bacon. Garlic.
'of each'
Being lazy, I'd use mixed herbs (or just buy a ready meal from a supermarket!) but I accept that the 'proper' way to make spag bol (for the very best results) is to use separate herbs. e.g. https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/best-spaghetti-bolognese-recipe
Sorry...forgot tinned tomatoes/pasta, puree. Also a splash or 2 of red wine if wanted.
Soy Sauce is also a (surprisingly) good addition, I've found.

And a generous amount of some red wine :)
I don’t put any herbs or spices in mine.

How can it be Spag Bol, Vagus?

Thanks, guys. Like your post, gingejbee.
Oregano, rosemary and bay leaves for me with a splash of soy or Worcester sauce.
I use cinnamon, paprika and oregano, red wine, a small square of dark chocolate and a bruised Bay leaf.
I add a square of dark chocolate to chilli, I don't make a bolognese often enough to have a favourite recipe - if I did I'd try Antonio's.
Chrissa, recipes vary. Of the two links mamy gives, one doesn’t contain any herbs or spices at all (that’s the one I use), the other calls for a tiny bit of nutmeg and one bay leaf.
Recipes are just a guide, we all tweak them to suit our individual tastes don’t we?
A friend of mine puts a few tbsp of ketchup as well.
The ideal Spag Bol recipe is never the same twice anyway. The one we made today included garlic, ginger, a splash of anchovy sauce, mushroom ketchup, soy sauce, red wine, some herbs, an extra onion, an Oxo cube, etc. Others I've made in the past have added two different kinds of smoked bacon, or a green pepper, or fresh basil, and so on.

I'd never thought of adding cinnamon, might have a go with that next time. How much?
My late daughter in law suggested that I should try adding a good splash of white wine instead of red and I agree with her.
Just wish she was still around to give me some more tips.
Maybe as well as?
