Spaghetti “Al Sérgio”
Hi everyone. Today I bring you a pasta recipe that I cook very frequently because it´s easy to do and tastes great. This recipe is called "Al Sérgio" because it´s my hubby´s recipe. It´s similar to "Spaghetti Bolognesa" but goes in the oven.
Next time I cook this recipe I´ll update the blog with a picture for you to see how it looks.
~ 300 gr of ground meat,
(beef, pork or mixed)
~ 6 Slices of bacon
~ 300 gr of Spaghetti
~ 150 gr Sliced cheese
~ 1 Minced onion
~ 4 Cloves of minced garlic
~ 6 Medium tomatoes
~ 3 Tsp of tomato paste
~ 2 Tsp of white wine
~ 4 Tsp Olive oil
~ Oregano and 1 tsp of parmesan cheese to sprinkle
Directions: 5 easy steps to cook a great recipe
1. Cook 2 slices of bacon with 2 tablespoons of olive oil for 2 minutes, add three cloves of garlic, meat, salt, and cook it until well browned. Reserve.
2. Cook spaghetti in boiling salted water (around 8/10 minutes). Drain spaghetti, and rinse with cold water. Reserve.
3. Cook the onion and the garlic with the other 2 tablespoons of olive oil until well browned. Stear in crushed tomatoes, previously prepared and salted, tomatoe pulp, white wine and mix well. Cook the tomato sauce for 10/15 minutes, mixing frequently, and reserve.
4. Preheat oven to 200º C.
Now you have all the ingredients ready, the next step is to finish cooking them in the oven.
5. In a special tray to cook in the oven put a layer of spaghetti, one of meat and cover it with tomato sauce. Repeat the process until you finish all ingredients, top with cheese and the other 4 slices of bacon. Sprinkle with oregano and the parmesan cheese. Olives also match well with this recipe. Cook it the oven for 30 minutes or until cheese melts completely. Serves 3/4.
