KezKat’s Spaghetti Bolognese

April 11, 2014
Spaghetti Bolognese is a favourite of mine, I made this the other day for the girls and I,  which was so yummy! This version is not like your usual spaghetti Bolognese,as  I’ve given it a little twist, its pretty simple and very tasty. Below are the ingredients hope you like it! Serving 4
 
Ingredients: 
You’ll need:
– Large Onion x 1
-Garlic x 2 cloves
-Spaghetti x 1 Pack
-Mince Meat x1 Pack
-Tomato Puree x 2 Tbspn
-Curry Powder x 1 tablespoon
-Red Bell Pepper x 1
-Fresh Tomatoes x3
-Scotch Bonnet (Optional) x 2
-Know/Maggie Cube x 2
-All purpose seasoning x 1 Tbspn
Start by dicing a whole onion, you’ll need half for the mince and half for the tomato sauce. In a pan add  2-3 tablespoons of oil (vegetable or olive oil). Let the onions sizzle for a 2-3 minutes before you add your mince.
Once the 3 minutes is up add your mince, Sprinkle some maggie (1 cube) or a teaspoon of salt. Folllowed by 1 tablespoon of curry powder and a tablespoon of all purpose seasoning. Stir lightly and leave to cook on medium to low heat for 10 – 15 minutes. We’re now going to move on to the sauce.
In a separate pan add your other half or diced onions, in vegetable oil. leave to simmer for 3 minutes over medium heat.
In a blender, add 3-4 tomatoes (to serve 4) if it’s just 1-2 serving use 2 tomatoes. Add 1 red bell pepper, 2 scotch bonnet chilli (this is optional) and 2 cloves of garlic and blend together for about 45 seconds till the ingredients liquify.
Once that is done pour the content into the heated pan over the onions. Sprinkle 1 know/maggie cube, a replacement for this is a large pinch of salt, once that’s done stir lightly and leave to cook for 20 minutes.
Once the time is up, add your mince to the tomato sauce stir together and cook on medium heat for an additional 10 minutes, It should be done once the time is up.
To cook the spaghetti you’ll need to boil some water in the kettle beforehand,  pour the hot water into a pot and add your spaghetti, if you’re wondering what the yellow thing is in the pan it’s butter.
It’s what I use to prevent the spaghetti from sticking together, either that or tablespoon of olive oil.
Boil your spaghetti for 15 minutes make sure you don’t over cook it so it doesn’t get too soggy. Once the time is up grab your colander and drain your spaghetti leave to cool for a few minutes.
Chop some fresh basil or parsley leaves and sprinkle it over your spaghetti Bolognese  once you’re ready to serve and there you have it!  Let me know your thoughts!
Enjoy Xx
