Spaghetti Bolgonaise is one of my favourite meals. It is one of the easiest and quickest meals to make when you are travelling (or not) and only needs a few utensils to get it made. So it is great whether you are staying in a hostel, while camping or if you have limited utensils in a small kitchenette. With only 10 minutes of preparation time and 25 minutes of cooking time, that means, you will be eating in 35 minutes. So enjoy my easy Spaghetti Bolognaise.
Utensils Required: knife to chop onion, 2 saucepans – 1 for sauce and 1 for pasta, spoon to stir with, bowl/s with spork to eat in and with – read my review on sporks as to why they are great to travel with.
Serve: very nice on its own or with salad and/or with garlic/herb bread. You could sprinkle some Parmeson Cheese on top if you have some. And a nice glass of wine. Enjoy.
Leftovers: not usually any leftovers but you can use left over pasta for other pasta dishes. If there is any sauce left over I often have it on toast for breakfast the next day.
- 250g beef/lamb/pork/chicken mince (if you are vegetarian you could use vegetables of your choice.
- 1 tablespoon oil (if available) (or butter to fry with)
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup tomato paste
- Can peeled diced tomatoes (the tomato paste & diced tomatoes could be replaced with a pre-made sauce)
- Pasta of your choice (for a bit of variety I change my pastas around – sometimes I use spaghetti, other times, Penne, spirals or even macaroni).
- 1. Bring a saucepan of water to the boil with a touch of oil (if available) and add pasta and allow to cook for 10-15 minutes or until tender, then drain.
- 2. Heat oil (or butter) in a pan, add onions and cook, stirring over medium heat for 1-2 minutes.
- 3. Add mince, (or vegetables) stirring constantly until well browned.
- 4. Stir in remaining ingredients.
