I may have mentioned, but my youngest is off to Uni this weekend 🤐 Busy ensuring he has everything he needs to start him off, so need something quick again tonight.
I,ve done the weeks shop at Aldi, and even with a few bits for youngest, I only spent £40 and that includes 2 bottle of their amazing New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc – I do like a glass of an evening 😉
I am trying to make some of his favourite dinners, and hoping that he may so a vague interest in how they are constructed….
Dinner tonight will be Spaghetti Bolognaise 🤓
I start but peeling and finely chopping an onion, and a crushed, chopped clove of garlic into a pan and gently fry, then add 400g of lean minced beef to the pan, breaking it up and brown off, then add a Tin of tomatoes and half a can of water, a good squeeze of tomato puree, plenty of dried mixed herbs, stir again, leave this to cook out for a few minutes, turn the heat as low as possible and leave for a half hour, stirring occasionally
Whilst this is bubbling away, I bring the Thermomix jug full to 2 ltrs full,of hot water and heat to 100, with a good pinch of salt, then add enough spaghetti for 3 and put it on reverse speed 1 for 10 mins – love watching this spin round 😋
When the meat sauce is thickened and still fairly wet, turn off the heat, drain the spaghetti and plate up, with a huge sprinkling of grated Parmasan – proper comfort food 😇
The sauce can be frozen in portions for easy meals when you havnt got time, add a bit of chilli and some kidney beans and you have a chilli – easy peasy 🤗
