Today celebrates “National Spaghetti Day.” Spaghetti originated from Italy and has been used in many different recipes like: Spaghetti Bolognese, Carbonara, Spaghetti with Prawns and hundreds more. Apparently you are supposed to spoon the sauce on top of the pasta and then toss it with a spoon and fork, but eat it with only a fork.
Below would be my own recipe for Spaghetti Bolognese!
- Preheat the oven the 180 C (Gas Mark 4)
- Slice cherry tomatoes, vine riped tomatoes, red bell pepper, seedless red chili (up to you how much), peeled carrots and celery in chunks and place it on a baking tray
- Drizzle olive oil, add basil, thyme, rosemary and season with salt and pepper
- Let it cook in the oven for 15 minutes and then toss. Then turn down the heat to 150 C and cook for another 20 minutes
- Meanwhile get your beef and put it in a large bowl
- Finely chop a red onion, leek,, garlic and place in your bowl
- Grin some bread until it turns out to be finely grinded breadcrumbs and add it to the bowl
- Crack an egg into the bowl
- Season with salt, pepper, chili flakes and then mix
- Get out a pan, drizzle some olive oil and let it heat up
- Then roll your meat into equal sized balls ( up to you how big you want them) and let cook in the pan on low heat for 10 – 15 minutes
- While that’s cooking, bring a saucepan to boil with water, and add olive oil and salt
- Place your spaghetti in the water and let it cook for 8 – 12 minutes
- KEEP CHECKING SO IT DOESN’T OVERCOOK!
- Take out your vegetables and turn the oven off
- Grind them in a food processor until it’s a liquid and pour into a saucepan and bring to boil
- Drain your spaghetti but leave some of the pasta water and add it to your sauce
- Mix the meatballs in the sauce and serve!
- Get your bowl and place the spaghetti in the middle
- Spoon the sauce and meatballs on top and finally, GRATE LOTS OF CHEESE!
- Top with basil and Enjoy!
I hope you like this recipe and make sure you try it out, because it is delicious!
HAPPY NATIONAL SPAGHETTI DAY!
