National Spaghetti Day

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!


  1. Preheat the oven the 180 C (Gas Mark 4)
  2. 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
  3. Drizzle olive oil, add basil, thyme, rosemary and season with salt and pepper
  4. 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
  5. Meanwhile get your beef and put it in a large bowl
  6. Finely chop a red onion, leek,, garlic and place in your bowl
  7. Grin some bread until it turns out to be finely grinded breadcrumbs and add it to the bowl
  8. Crack an egg into the bowl
  9. Season with salt, pepper, chili flakes and then mix
  10. Get out a pan, drizzle some olive oil and let it heat up
  11. 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
  12. While that’s cooking, bring a saucepan to boil with water, and add olive oil and salt
  13. Place your spaghetti in the water and let it cook for 8 – 12 minutes
  15. Take out your vegetables and turn the oven off
  16. Grind them in a food processor until it’s a liquid and pour into a saucepan and bring to boil
  17. Drain your spaghetti but leave some of the pasta water and add it to your sauce
  18. Mix the meatballs in the sauce and serve!
  19. Get your bowl and place the spaghetti in the middle
  20. Spoon the sauce and meatballs on top and finally, GRATE LOTS OF CHEESE!
  21. Top with basil and Enjoy!
