After mass Joe and I whacked some finger licking banana leaf at Nirvana. Came home full and very drugged...needless to say we snoozed the afternoon away:-)
Dinner tonight was simple and fuss free...some spaghetti bolognese and a side of tasty garlic bread....which I just tore out of its packaging and stuffed in the oven!
Onion - chopped
A few pips of garlic - chopped
Lots of Mixed herbs, Oregano, Mixed Spice, Coarse Pepper, 2 tsp of chili powder or paprika
1 can each of Pureed Tomatoe and Diced Tomatoe and 1 small tin of Tomatoe paste
Fresh Parsely chopped
1 Bay Leaf
Saute the onions and garlic in some olive oil, then add a bay leaf. Next stir in the minced beef and let it brown a bit. Add the mixed herbs, Oregano, dash of mixed spice, lots of pepper, chili powder/paprika and keep stirring for about 4 mins. Add the frsh mushrooms and stir for a further 3 mins and then add the tomatoe paste, puree and diced and salt. Let it simmer for a bit before adding the chopped parsley.
Serve with preferred choice of pasta.
Verdict : The husband didn't have second serving of spaghetti although he did have a second round of rice at Nirvana...he is asking for trouble !!!
