I didn’t get a chance to write yesterday, seeing that I was working on my term paper which needed to be turned in by today. The headache continued making it hard to concentrate and sometimes see clearly. I finally managed though to complete it and send it to my professor.

I had to make something quick and simple for lunch seeing that I had very limitesd time because of the work that needed to be completed. So I decided that I would make a dish that hubby and daughter love; Spaghetti with mince meat sauce. Both of them are pasta lovers… I can’t say I really am a pasta lover, but I do enjoy eating it now and then. So here is the recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1 pack spaghetti 500gr

For the meat sauce:

  • 750 grams minced beef or a mixture of minced beef and pork
  • 1 large onion or 2 medium sized ones
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 can of finely chopped tomatoes processed into sauce
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 small glass  dry red wine
  • Mixed spices ( cinammon, cloves, etc)
  • Mixed herbs for meat dishes
  • dash of sugar
  • salt and pepper
 Instructions:
 
Place the onion and garlic in a food processor and finely chop them. Add them to a saucepan that has some olive oil and saute them.. Then add the mince meat and let it turn brown. Once that is done pour the glass of wine.. After a few minutes add the tomatoes and tomato paste,sugar, herbs, spices, salt and pepper and a little water and let it boil until the sauce is ready. 
 
In another pot add water, salt and bring it to boil adding your pasta. Boil them according to the instructions (9-10 minutes). We like our pasta al dente!
 
Serve the spaghetti in a dish. Pour the sauce on top and sprinkle with grated cheese of your preference… Enjoy!!!!
