Recipe Of The Week08/04/09
It's our favourite time of the week - That's right....it's time for recipe of the week!
This week we have a timeless classic brought to you by none other than our very own Ed 'Bring The Flavour' Pearson..
Get that sauce right!
500g beef mince - Add this to your pan first and cook till it's slightly browned then add...
1 Red onion
2 400g tins of chopped tomatoes
100g tomato Puree
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoons oregano
two cloves of fresh garlic
one glass (125ml) red wine
1 teaspoon of chilli flakes to spice up your life….(optional!)
Once you've added all of these fresh ingredients.. let it cook on a low heat for 1 hour. This will bring the flavour!
Get that pasta right!
Allow roughly 200g of pasta per head (for the very hungry) - a normal portion is around 150g. Boil a lot of water (1 litre per 100g), add some olive oil and salt. When the water is boiling, add the pasta. Tends to be 10 - 12 minutes for spaghetti. Now put the whole lot into a colander which you should have placed in your sink! Shake until water has drained then serve up pronto!
Add your sauce – Job done!
Simple…but very..very tasty!
