Add the tomato paste, fry and stir until combine with the vegetables. Then add the ground beef, and cook for 3 minutes. Use a wooden spoon to crumble up the meat.  When the meat has browned pour in the red wine, reduce by half. Then add crushed tomato, and mix to combine. Add cooked spaghetti and spaghetti water to the pan and toss well the sauce. Turn the heat to a low simmer to at least 30 minutes then add milk.
