The Best Spaghetti Bolognaise I Ever Had.........



Few days ago..... son H made for his dearest mummy the best spaghetti bolognaise she had ever tasted. Thank you, son.....I am indeed very blessed for you to cook for me such a nice dish. In fact this is better than what I usually cook for him.....so I ask him the hows and whats of making this dish....and here are his answers...

Some handful of ground beef (200 gms), cubed carrots (1/2), chopped celery (1 stick), chopped big onions (1 no.), chopped tomatoes (1 no.), canned stewed tomatoes with bell peppers (1 tin), pinches of black pepper and dried mix mixed herbs, chopped portabello mushroom (2 nos), a knob of butter and a tablespoon of olive oil for sauteeing the ingredients above......


First heat the butter and olive oil in pan...then put in the chopped onions, to cook til soft and then add in carrots and celery, mushrooms, to fry for a minute with a sprinkling of mix herbs...then add in the ground beef. Fry the beef til it change colour .... next add in a can of stewed tomato mixture together with the freshly chopped tomatoes.....bring to a slow simmer with a little water (1/2 cup) to get a wet sauce....and cook for 10 to 15 minutes til the veges are soft and meat tender.....lastly add in some salt to taste.


Then it is ready to be mixed with freshly boiled spaghetti....sprinkle with some black pepper and freshly grated parmesan cheese on top before serving. The above amount can make approximately 3 servings.
