Simple Spaghetti Bolognese for the Sporty Children


What to do when their favorite food is spaghetti with tomato paste?


You give them, of course, spaghetti and tomato paste. Or I do, anyway. When I'm home alone with the kids, I often ask if there is something they really would like to eat. It is rarely that they are allowed to determine the supper, but in between there must be room to enjoy a little extra and get favorite foods. The answer is usually always spaghetti with sausage and ketchup and tartar sauce.


500g minced meat

1 packet brown Spaghetti Noodles

1 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp tomato paste

1 large onion, chopped

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 cans chopped tomatoes ¼ cup chopped parmesan cheese

1 pinch salt and black pepper

How to cook

Place 1 litre water in a pot, top with some black pepper, salt and a couple of drops of olive oil. Place over high heat and bring to a boil. Once boiling, place spaghetti noodles and cook till tender. Drain and set aside.

Bolognese sauce

Meanwhile, prepare the Bolognese sauce.

In a large sauce pan, sweat the minced garlic and onions in a little bit of olive oil. Add the minced meat, black pepper and salt cook stirring till juices run clear. Add chopped tomatoes, tomato paste and stir to mix. Once boiling, reduce the heat and cook for a further 15 minutes.

Place Pasta in a bowl, and top with Bolognese sauce. Top with grated parmesan cheese and serve with a bowl of salad.
