30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 28 – Hassle Free Spaghetti Recipe

Hi Everyone! In keeping with my Bon Appetit section on my blog, I thought I’d share my favourite spaghetti recipe. Spaghetti is one of the easiest and hassle free meals to make and I love any Italian food. For the next 7 days I will be uploading a recipe a day as I have been very quiet on the blog.

INGREDIENTS:

500 g Ground/Minced Meat (I usually use 1 packet but for 4 guests or more I use 2 packets)

1-2 Onions (for more flavour I prefer using red onions)

1/2Β  green pepper, diced.

1 clove of chopped or grated garlic

1/2 a packet of spaghetti, depending on how many guests you are serving. My personal favourite is the Fattis and Monis spaghetti.

2 – 4 cans of tomato paste, my personal favourites are the Koo tomato paste or the Rhodes tomato paste cups. Depending on how many people I serve, 2 – 3 people I usually use 2 Rhodes tomato paste cups.

1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil

1 pinch of salt.

PREPARING THE MINCE:

Fry the onion until golden brown, add green pepper and add garlic.

Once the garlic and green pepper are sauteed, add the mince into the frying pan and fry until the mince is ready. I personally love to add BBQ spice for extra kick and hearty flavour. Once ready, it can be removed from the heat.

In a separate pot, add boiling water to spaghetti with a pinch of salt and teaspoon of oil. Once all ingredients are in the pot, boil the spaghetti for about 1–15 minutes or until it is soft, yet firm to chew.

Drain spaghetti into a colander and add it to the mince and mix together. Add tomato paste into the spaghetti and mince and season with a little bit of sugar just for a hint of sweetness and so that the bitterness of the tomato sauce is not too overpowering.

Feel free to leave out the mince if you’re not into mince but personally it’s what brings the whole meal together in my opinion.

  1. Hello, I believe your blog could possibly be having internet browser compatibility problems.
    Whenever I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but
    when opening in IE, it’s got some overlapping issues.
    I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Aside from
    that, fantastic website!

    1. Hi sorry to hear that, but why would you need to open it in different browswers? Unfortunately my blog is hosted by WordPress so there’s not much I can do. Once again, really sorry

  2. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into
    starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get
    setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would
    be greatly appreciated. Kudos
