Spaghetti With Meat Sauce

March 13, 2013 | 2 Comments

"Exploring Italian cuisines is such a pleasure & cooking spaghetti with meat sauce is the best part of it. Choosing the correct tomatoes (ideally ripe plum tomato) makes the difference to the taste of the whole dish. I prefer to use just the adequate amount of tomatoes (usually less) for the sauce, since I don't want to tomato to over power the other wonderful ingredients."

To Cook Meat Sauce

Step 1
In a bowl mix minced meat, salt and pepper all together. Set this a side & let it marinate about 15 minutes.
Step 2
Heat up oil in a sauce pan, when oil is hot add 1/2 of chopped onion and 3/4 of garlic in to the pan and saute until onion and garlic are light brown on medium heat for about 5 minutes.
Step 3
Now add diced tomatoes in to the sauce pan and mix well all together. Stir occasionally and keep coking for about 8 minutes and add marinated mince meat in to the sauce pan and mix well. Cook for further 5 minutes,
Step 4
Then add oregano in to sauce pan and stir well. Cover the sauce pan with lid and cook further for about 15 minutes. Stir occasionally.
Step 5
When meat is cooked add remaining chopped onion & chopped garlic, chopped green chili, chopped coriander, red bell pepper and chopped parsley in to the pan and mix well. Cook for further 2 minutes.

To Cook Spaghetti

Step 7
In a medium sized boiling pot boil water for about 5 minutes. Add spaghetti in to the boiling water and cook it according to packet direction. When the spaghetti is cooked enough, drain the excess water and keep it side (if spaghetti is getting to stick to the bottom of the pan then add little bit of oil and stir).
