Spaghetti Bolognese 5/13/19

Since I have not been very interested in cooking and eating due to my cold (which is going on for 10 days now!), John suggested spaghetti Bolognese for dinner tonight knowing that it is one of my favorites.

Spaghetti Bolognese

My ingredients are pretty simple – ground beef, onions, garlic, oregano, chili flakes, tomato paste, a large can of crushed San Marzano tomatoes, and a regular sized can of petite diced tomatoes, and salt. Oh, and you must not forget my secret ingredient, fish sauce. A teaspoon of fish sauce gives the dish an amazing depth of flavor!

I made the sauce around 4 PM and let it simmer until dinner at 7PM when John boiled the water and cooked some spaghetti rigati, spaghetti with striations. I took 4  ladlesful of the sauce and put it in a separate pan so I could finish cooking the spaghetti in the sauce. The plate is garnished with Parmesan cheese, finishing oil, and fresh oregano. It was delicious!

Bonus! Three containers of sauce in the freezers for future dinners!
